(VIDEO) Paul Ryan Will Ditch the RNC If Trump Wins Nomination


Former House Speaker Paul Ryan said he will not attend the RNC in Milwaukee if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for president.

Ryan told a reporter from WISN Channel 12 Milwaukee that it “depends on who the nominee is” if he will attend the event in his home state.

“For the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where will you be?” a reporter asked Ryan.

“It depends on who the nominee is,” Ryan answered. “I’ll be here if it’s somebody not named Trump,” he added.

“You won’t show up if it’s Trump?” the reporter asked.

“Yeah, I’m not interested in participating in that,” Ryan stated.

“Even in Wisconsin,” he added.


This isn’t the first time Paul Ryan has thrown jabs at President Trump.

The failed Vice Presidential candidate (who has never won a national election) called Trump a “proven loser.”

Ryan also proudly called himself a “Never-Again-Trumper.”

“But I am a Never-Again-Trumper. Why? Because I want to win, and we lose with Trump. It was really clear to us in ’18, in ’20 and now in 2022," Ryan said.

Will Paul Ryan stay home in August when Milwaukee hosts the first GOP Primary debate?

"We’re looking forward to not only hosting the 2024 RNC, where we will show off our exceptional city & the future president of the United States, but excited MKE has been selected to host the first presidential debate!" Wisconsin GOP Chairman Brian Schimming announced on Twitter.

Spectrum News 1 reported:

It’s the only city to be chosen for a debate so far. An exact date, time and location haven’t been announced.

Milwaukee is already set to host the RNC from July 15 to 18, 2024. It beat out three other cities for the spot: Nashville, Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City.

In early February, the RNC bid committee announced that Pittsburgh had been removed from consideration. Utah's capital city dropped out in mid-March, leaving Milwaukee and Nashville as the last two contenders. The RNC made it official during their summer meeting held at the JW Marriott Chicago.

The only official candidate so far, other than Trump, is former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
