Much will be made of the endorsement and change of position for Paul Ryan, but something should be emphasized the MSM will overlook: Donald Trump is ambivalent to this endorsement.
Donald Trump has repeatedly said he did not want -nor need- Ryan to endorse him.
The reasoning is quite simple and can be found in a short section of Ryan’s article published today where he describes some of the conversation between Trump and himself:
“the House policy agenda has been the main focus of our dialogue”
Candidate Donald Trump DOES NOT support “the house policy agenda“; he never will. Ryan’s agenda is the legislative priority list of Wall Street and the K-Street lobbyists who are funding his house membership. Donald Trump’s entire campaign approach is directly in opposition to Ryan’s Wall Street agenda and both he and Ryan accept that.
Unfortunately for Ryan, and very fortunately for America, Trump’s position is the winning position. That’s why Ryan has to move now to try to remain relevant to the future platform. Ryan is trying to save his Wall Street Legislative priority list.
