‘He’s Tied to the Mast of This Ryan Ship’: Krauthammer Says Trump Won’t Cut Loose From Paul Ryan

Following President Donald Trump’s rally this evening, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly welcomed contributor Charles Krauthammer to discuss Trump’s remarks. According to Krauthammer, he noticed in Trump’s address that despite news out of Washington that many Republicans aren’t thrilled with the American Health Care Act, Trump kept pushing the new plan at the rally. And that means he’s sticking with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. “Some of the stories are, there conflicting stories, that some of the Trump supporters, the people in the White House, his loyalists, are trying to cut loose from Paul Ryan and are trying to make distance,” he told O’Reilly. “And what I heard here was not that.” Krauthammer added, “I think Trump has decided he is tied to the mast of this Ryan ship and that is the vehicle with which he is either going to succeed fail on Obamacare.” Watch the clip above, via Fox News.
