Trump Throws Twitter Tantrum, Lashes Out At Paul Ryan For Rejecting His Call To End Citizenship

Donald Trump on Wednesday fired off a blistering attack against House Speaker Paul Ryan for rejecting his call to end birthright citizenship.

“Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump’s tweet follows criticism from Ryan Tuesday of the president’s suggestion that he could end birthright citizenship through an executive order.

The tweet also points to underlying tensions between Trump and House Republicans as the GOP fights to hold on to its majority in the midterm elections next week.

Recent polls suggest Democrats have a good chance of winning back the House majority, and Trump’s remarks about birthright citizenship were widely seen as damaging to vulnerable Republicans struggling to hold on to suburban House districts.
