Rep. Tom Cole, R-Oklahoma, a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee and an adviser to Republican leaders, said his "operating assumption" is that Ryan will run again for speaker.
U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan predicted four years rife with scandal if Democrat Hillary Clinton is elected president.
The Hill is also reporting that conservativeHouse Republicans are deeply divided on keeping Ryan, but Donald Trump could be the wild card that mobilizing an opposition effort to the Speaker, "The businessman has repeatedly criticized Ryan's leadership and was stung after the Speaker said he would not longer defend Trump after a 2005 tape emerged in which the GOP nominee speaks lewdly about groping and kissing women. We get Clinton's scandals", Ryan said.
Rep. Ryan is also pushing an alternative plan to Obamacare which he says he along with Republican members of Congress and Trump have been working together on.
The race for the White House
During an appearance on Fox and Friends, the hosts questioned Ryan about his differences with Trump.
'For those of us who lived through the 1990s.it's sort of a feeling of déjà vu, the point I keep trying to make to younger voters who did not live through the 1990s, this is what life with the Clintons looks like, ' Ryan told viewers. "There's always a scandal, one after another, there's an investigation". It takes this country through an ugliness, playing by a different set of rules, using the system to help themselves, not to help you. "And so they can win, and she could come in with a Democratic Congress, the worst of all possible things, if Republicans do not turn out and do not vote".
He noted that once the Fox interview was over, he'd be on his way campaigning for Republicans in Indiana, Michigan, New York, and Virginia - doing everything he can to assist the GOP to retain the House chamber. "So you know it's not, I think this November will tell the tale and pick it up from there, but it's a tough time of it really at a crossroads I think". I'm on my way right now to IN with one of our members running there then I'm going to MI, then I'm going to NY, then Virginia'.
Some mainstream conservatives who constitute the bulk of House Republicans are starting to openly contemplate whether he will want to continue as speaker. I have been all along, which has not changed at all. 'I'm just focusing on my primary responsibility, which is saving our House majority'. "I've already got a long schedule that has been in play, fighting for House and Senate Republicans".
