Pat Buchanan lays out the Ryan/Trump debate and makes it clear that the people come down on the Trump side.
As for the issues dividing Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan, Trump appears to have won the argument, if the debate is decided by voter preferences rather than Beltway preferences.
Trump’s denunciation of NAFTA and other “free-trade” deals that Ryan supports is echoed by Sanders, who opposed those deals when they were up for a vote.
Ryan professes to be a man of principle. Why does he not then stand by his principles, as Goldwater did, and bring up TPP for a vote?
Is Paul Ryan’s “immigration reform” package as popular inside his party as Trump’s tough line? Ryan voted for the Iraq War that Trump calls a disaster. The people seem to agree with Trump that the war was misconceived.
