Trump And Ryan Humiliated As House Massively Votes Down GOP ‘Compromise’ Immigration Bill

An immigration bill that was supposed be a compromise among Republicans, and was endorsed by Trump, crashed and burned in the House.

Trump endorsed the bill via a tweet:

Paul Ryan Will Not Seek Re-Election, Confirming Rumors Of His Retirement

After repeated denials of rumors about House Speaker Paul Ryan’s plans to retire, it was confirmed on Wednesday that he will, in fact, be leaving Congress.

“This morning Speaker Ryan shared with his colleagues that this will be his last year as a member of the House,” said counselor to the Speaker Brendan Buck. “He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January. After nearly twenty years in the House, the speaker is proud of all that has been accomplished and is ready to devote more of his time to being a husband and a father. While he did not seek the position, he told his colleagues that serving as speaker has been the professional honor of his life, and he thanked them for the trust they placed in him. He will discuss his decision at a press conference immediately following the member meeting.” read more
