President Trump raises cash in Milwaukee as he reignites feud with Wisconsin's Paul Ryan

Updated 4:30 p.m. CT July 12, 2019


President Donald Trump raised $3 million in Wisconsin cash on Friday touring Milwaukee to promote a new trade deal he says will help rebuild the country's wounded manufacturing industry.

But in doing so, the president didn't acknowledge the suffocation felt by Wisconsin dairy farmers by Trump's own tariffs and reignited a feud with former House Speaker and Janesville Congressman Paul Ryan.

Trump arrived in Milwaukee still simmering about Ryan's recently reported opinion that the president didn't know "anything about government" and less than two hours after losing his labor secretary amid furor over a child sex trafficking scheme

The president set aside the controversy — for now — in Milwaukee as he pushed Congress to approve a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada and to boost his campaign's coffers in a private fundraiser.

“We were laughed at by the rest of the world. We were patsies,” Trump told a crowd at Derco Aerospace about previous trade deals — namely, the North American Free Trade Agreement he wants to replace.

MILWAUKEE — President Donald Trump laid into former Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan as a "baby" and a "terrible speaker" on Friday hours before visiting Ryan's home state to talk trade and raise money for his 2020 re-election campaign.

Trump unleashed his criticism after the former congressman from Janesville was quoted in a new book as saying the president didn't know anything about governing and that he retired to get away from him.

"Paul Ryan let us down. Paul Ryan was a terrible speaker," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn. "Frankly, he was a baby. He didn't know what the hell he was doing."


Ryan condemns Trump in "American Carnage," by Tim Alberta of Politico. Alberta wrote that the former speaker, who retired from Congress in 2018, could not stand the idea of another two years with the Republican president and saw retirement as the "escape hatch." Ryan is quoted saying: "I'm telling you, he didn't know anything about government. I wanted to scold him all the time."

On Thursday evening, Trump unleashed tweets labeling Ryan as a "lame duck failure.".................................

4. Same here

In one way or another he manages to make news everyday in some form of any and every historical villain I ever knew of - one day Hitler, another day Nixon, another day Clint Eastwood at a republican convention, another day Jesse Helms, another day Strom Thurmond, etc.

5. Just another flare up in the raging dumpster fire that is Donald Trump.

Trump fighting with Ryan shows Trump really just want to fight, only he does not have what it takes to debate a true progressive.
