US House Speaker Paul Ryan won't run for re-election

US House Speaker Paul Ryan won't run for re-election

Republicans have a 237-192 advantage in the House.

WASHINGTON ― House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) attempted in an interview airing Sunday to frame his legacy on his own terms, brushing off the criticism that he facilitated President Donald Trump's makeover of the Republican Party. Ryan said the majority of the Republican Party was "in good hands and with a bright future".

Ryan, who was the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2012, poured cold water on speculation he could be eyeing a presidential campaign in 2020 or beyond. And the president tweeted out this photo of the group.

And least a few buddies together with a leader of this tea-party movements have publically and privately suggested they could add to the congressional rankings following November, giving power in direction voting to them. Lots to discuss as we continue MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Let's go to NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson.

Honored to have Republican Congressional Leadership join me at the @WhiteHouse this evening. He's raised $54 million in the previous year and a half. And Trump's presidency has raised questions about the role of traditional conservatism in the Republican world. "So you better make the most of it".

LIASSON: Right. You're a lame duck. I guess they can relate to Mr. Ryan's dilemma.

LIASSON: No, these numbers are not normal.

"We obviously have our differences and we have disagreed publicly and privately, but I do believe I've been doing things that are in the best interests of the country", Ryan answered.

Bowling: HH Pandya 2-0-32-0, Dananjaya 4-0-47-0, Bumrah 4-0-27-0, Rahman 4-0-25-1, Markande 3-0-42-0, KH Pandya 3-0-21-2. Shikhar Dhawan got Sunrisers off to a flier in their run chase but was dismissed by Mayank Markande for 45 from 28 balls.

"She's somebody I recruited in a primary to come to Congress". And I think the bottom line is all these retirements are a big morale booster for Democrats.

"He works so hard and then comes home on weekends, I think, and that must be tiresome", said Douglas Derby, who has lived in Janesville since 1974. Will you see a leadership that more reflects his priorities?

- He can't stand working with President Donald Trump, whose impulsive actions made governing chaotic and hard.

But Ryan's dramatic departure - barely two years after his party, on the brink of an internal civil war, turned to him as a popular unifier between the feuding factions of conservatives, moderates, libertarians, and populist-nationalists - fits a larger pattern. "We are with you Paul!" the President wrote. The president denied that report and said he is taking a cooperative approach to dealing with the special counsel.

LIASSON: That's right. He's up.

Ryan also expressed hesitation about moving on a new authorization, warning against circumscribing the military's ability to act quickly against new threats.

She says she's looking forward to having more balance in the family's life. Mara, thanks as always.
