Het Republikeinse verkiezingscircus wordt met de dag krankzinniger. Laatste ontwikkeling: de Republikeinse voorzitter van het Huis van Afgevaardigden, Paul Ryan, dreigt Donald Trump voor de rechter te slepen wanneer deze zijn plan om moslims de toegang tot de VS te ontzeggen doorzet. Maar – hou je vast – Ryan zal tóch voor Trump stemmen, want Hillary is veel erger. Zoiets.
Ryan originally withheld his endorsement of Trump in early May, citing a desire to have “real unity,” not “fake unity,” with the likely GOP nominee. Four weeks later, Ryan endorsed….
He added that unity was difficult to achieve when you have “principles” — presumably like the ones that say people shouldn’t be barred from entering the country on the basis of their religion — “being violated.”
On the topic of Trump’s proposed Muslim ban and his statements that he couldenact such a policy without Congress, Ryan noted that Republicans were releasing part of their agenda on executive overreach that very day, and, in news that’s sureto please Trump, Ryan suggested that he and the House of Representatives were prepared to sue a Republican president if need be.
“I would sue any president that exceeds his or her powers,” Ryan said.
