Sessions Tells Paul Ryan To Get On Board With Trump

Conservative firebrand and Republican Senator Jeff Sessions (Alabama) did not mince his words on the subject of the unsettled relationship between GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan and soon-to-be Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in an interview on Tuesday.

Sessions made it clear he supported Trump (with a few qualifiers), and that he expected Speaker Ryan to also offer his support to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee in the near future.

Sessions Scolds Ryan In Tuesday Interview

“I think he needs to recognize on some of these issues Trump is where the Republicans are,” Sessions commented an interview with Politico’s “Off Message” podcast.

The well-known right-wing firebrand went on to argue that: “The American people agree with Trump, and I agree with Trump, on those things (immigration, foreign policy). The Republican Party is the Republican voters. A lot of our drift within our party has gotten away from that.”

Perhaps trying to blunt his criticism of Ryan a bit, Sessions dialed back the rhetoric at the end of the interview, noting that there were certainly solid opportunities for collaboration between Ryan and Trump if The Donald comes out on top of Hillary Clinton in the general election in November.
