President Trump unleashed on Paul Ryan in a late night tweet storm in response to the criticism of the former speaker in a new book.

In the book “American Carnage” Ryan recalled his difficult collaboration with the President. He said, Politically, Tim Alberta that Trump “didn’t know anything about the government” and that he and others “helped to dissuade him, to make the wrong decisions.”

“Because, I’m telling you, he knew nothing about the government . . . I wanted to scold him all the time,” Ryan said, allegedly, in the book. “Those of us who helped him around is really to dissuade him, to make the wrong decisions. All of the time. We helped him to make much better decisions, which, in contrast to what the conclusion of the reaction, was his short. Now I think he makes some of these knee-jerk reactions.”

Trump blasted Ryan as a “failed Vice-presidential beat”-a candidate with a “terrible” record as a Congressman.

“Paul Ryan, the failed V. P. candidate & Ex-speaker of the house, whose record of performance was atrocious (except during my first two years as President), ultimately, was a long-running lame duck error, so that his party in the lurch, both as a fundraiser & leader…” Trump tweeted.

Trump went on to claim that, if 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney chose Ryan as his running mate, he told the people, “this is the end of this President.”

“He not left the Congress, because he knows how to Win,” the President continued. “They gave me a standing O’s in the Great state of Wisconsin & booed him off the stage. He promised me the wall, & failed (anyway!)….”

Trump added, “He had the majority & blew it away with his poor management style and bad timing. Knew not how to go after the Dems, as they look after us. It was not from the Congress fast enough!”

This is announced a drastic shift in the tone of the President, as Ryan, he would not be seeking re-election in April 2018.

“Spokesman Paul Ryan is a really good person, and while he is not seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of power, no one can question. We are with you, Paul!” Trump tweeted at the time.
