Ryan praised Trump in an interview with PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff at the Aspen Ideas Festival at the weekend, reported The Washington Post.
He claimed of the president:
He’s not taking any crap. I mean, he’s taking on political correctness; he’s taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they’re being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to. And he’s concerned about their issues. That is the guttural core of what I would call the party base right now, the Trump base.
