In a Wednesday interview with the “Daily Caller” Trump said the former White House Speaker promised him the $5 billion he wanted for the border wall.
According to the President, Ryan assured him he’d quote: “Get you that wall” if Trump did not veto last year’s spending bill.
Ryan led the GOP Majority House for the first two years of Trump’s administration.
Trump is now accusing Ryan of failing to follow through with that deal after he announced he would not seek reelection in 2018.
However a senior GOP aide involved with the appropriations process points out the House did approve the money Trump wanted during Ryan’s tenure.
It was the GOP-led Senate that blocked the funding.
Ryan has not commented on the President’s remarks.
