Skip to comments.Ryan sets schedule for Thursday Trump meetings
Posted on 05/10/2016 1:48:26 PM PDT by BAW
Donald Trump will meet face-to-face with Speaker Paul Ryan at 9 a.m. on Thursday at the RNC, according to a GOP leadership source familiar with the schedule.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will sit in the meeting, too.
A second meeting including Ryan, Trump and a larger roster of GOP leadership will follow. Attendees will include Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), and Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.)
There will be no press availability after, but Ryan will do an on-camera availability later that morning, the source said.
Trump has no plans to meet with Trump endorsers at this time, according to two additional sources familiar with this schedule. But supporters will meet Friday morning with the Trump campaigns Hill liaisons to discuss how the meeting went and next steps forward.
Maybe he will lose re-election, and solve the problem for good : )
Ryan, you’re fired.
I'm betting Ryan stays as convention chair and ends up supporting Trump. (He really wants to remain Speaker but I hope he is ousted.)
Paul Ryan, you’re fired.
There’s a very good chance he won’t make it to the general election.His primary challenger is coming on strong.
Ryan getting eliminated in the primary would send quite a message to those slugs in the establishment.
Going into this meeting they both know a few things: Trump does not need Ryan to secure the nomination; trump and Ryan both know if Trump wins the election, Ryan could cause him problems in the house; if Trump loses, good chance Ryan would not be speaker as GOP would take a drubbing. Ace up sleeve for Trump, he could actively campaign against Ryan and unseat him before the election making him lame duck.
The question is how does Trump approach this. Does he start off with What do you Want Ryan? Or does he tell him cut the crap and come on board or else? Since I don’t see what trump would have to give up from his core ideas about immigration, I don’t see a quid quo pro deal here, therefore point two, get on board or get wrecked. I’d love to be a fly on the wall of that room!
Ryan will crumble in Trump’s presence. Such a twit. Should remove himself as convention chair.
Ryan expects Trump to be the supplicant. Big mistake!!!
Trump will tell Ryan that he was adamant about Trump signing a pledge. Mr. Ryan, you signed the same pledge. Apparently you never had any intention of keeping that pledge. I’ll give you the floor.
Trump is known for sitting and listening to all sides of a situation...after this, he lowers the BOOM!!!
If I were Trump I would be pissed this lite weight is wasting my time traveling and jawing with him.
Big wins today in NE and WV will give Trump another big press venue to point out his 60%+ wins today.
Ryan is the budget expert that never gets to even a smaller budget.
Kissing Obama’s butt doesn’t endear you to the base.
IMHO best scenario is Ryan folds and endorses Trump, then gets Cantorized in the primary. Would send a powerful message.
This is all necessary and needed. It is sinking in that the argument that hillary will easily beat trump is fraudulent. We now know Trump leads in Ohio and is tied with her in Florida and PA and he has not even started pealing her banana. There is no excuse for her not to be indicted quickly now and sanders gets the Super delegates and we run against a communist clown. We need to get together and make deals for the good of AMERICA!!
Really, you never go without a witness
My money says Mr Trump will tell Lyin Ryan the facts of life and that he will be gone before the General election because he is Financially supporting your opponent.
But if he walked out with a black eye, life would be great!
One thing for sure, Ryan has never dealt with anyone like Trump. Heretofore, all he has ever dealt with have been geldings like himself.
Yes, in case someone wants some tea...they’ll need some boiling water.
