Does President Trump Want Speaker Paul Ryan to Resign?

Pirro is also a longtime friend and supporter of President Trump, so those expecting another spoon fed interview with the president were in for a bigger surprise than a scathing SNL skit. Noah said in the segment (above) Monday night after playing the clip of Pirro bashing the Speaker of the House for failing to deliver enough votes to pass the GOP's health care bill.

President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan say that Obamacare is on the verge of collapse.

In Pirro's telling, Ryan let Trump down by not doing his share of the work in corralling Republican votes to fulfill a seven-year promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - a view held by a number of the president's advisers. "I think it was more coincidental, Chris".

Pirro said that Ryan "has got to go" because 'the American people won't forget this and neither should the president'.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus denied there was any coordination between the White House and Pirro.

Pirro is an avid supporter of Trump and was rumored to be in line for a cabinet position during the transition. He enjoys his relationship with Paul Ryan.

In her commentary, Pirro took aim squarely at Ryan for the bill's failure.

As I gain more confidence in the outlook I could support three total this year. The spectre of slower US rate hikes has been helping high-yielding currencies.

Ryan's office said Sunday there's nothing to read into Mr. Trump's tweet. There's a reason no one lined up to replace Boehner after he resigned, until Ryan reluctantly allowed himself to be drafted: Uniting a caucus that's fractured ideologically is a futile, thankless job. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it.

The Republicans are more afraid of the media than they are of you the voter. There were clashes many a time during the campaign but after the election, they were getting along well and a rift between the White House and congress will be in nobody's interest.

As the negotiations progressed, the White House became aware of the schisms within the GOP ranks, which festered for years and led Ryan's predecessor, House Speaker John Boehner, to step down.

Yesterday (27 March), the Secretary was asked whether Trump should apologise for urging followers to watch Judge Jeanine Pirro's Saturday show on Fox News Channel. "No", Spicer replied to the questioner, according to Deadline.

"He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill", she said.

Rep. Tom Cole, Oklahoma Republican and ally of the center-right Tuesday Group, said "it's really a problem in our own party", and that's something Trump will "need to deal with moving forward".

But Trump and his supporters seized on a revelation by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes, a California Republican, who said last week that the Obama administration may have "incidentally" collected communications by Trump team members as part of a legal investigation.
