Ryan: Trump 'disappointed' by Speaker's decision to retire

The announcement will set off a mad dash within the House Republican Conference to replace Ryan. "Just this past term so much has been accomplished by Speaker Ryan and President Trump". Even with a Republican-controlled Congress, and a Republican President Trump, Mr. Ryan couldn't dismantle Obamacare - to the relief of millions.

Ryan's actions and inaction as Speaker left his image severely damaged, not just among Democrats, but also conservative Republicans. A few months back, [after attending] church, I went to Dunkin Donuts with my sister and we ran into Speaker Ryan there.

Buck says that while Ryan did not seek the position of speaker, "he told his colleagues that serving as speaker has been the professional honor of his life, and he thanked them for the trust they placed in him". He wants to spend more time with his children rather than continuing to be a "weekend dad". "I didn't want this job at first ...

He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January", Brendan Buck, a counselor to Ryan, Buck said in a statement.

His stepping down, particularly the significant role he has played galvanizing his party and raising funds, is sure to have national ramifications, most immediately in special elections and the upcoming midterm in November.

"Paul Ryan's name is right here", Halabi said as he pointed to the brick signed in 1988.

"There is no one who can get the 218 votes to be speaker today except Paul Ryan", North Carolina's Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus, said.

Allowing that to happen could rekindle the budget battles that consumed Congress for much of 2017 and early 2018, a scenario lawmakers had hoped the $1.3 trillion March spending bill had averted through November's congressional elections. He said that the possibility of losing Republican control of the House of Representatives did not factor into his decision, and expressed confidence Republicans would retain their majority.

"I don't like the fact that you feel that way, and we need more minorities, more women in our party, and I've been focusing on that kind of recruitment", Ryan said. Ryan insisted that he has "very good dialogue" with the president, that he's happy with the GOP's political accomplishments, and that his retirement from Capitol Hill has nothing to do with any "Trump fatigue".

But Ryan's dramatic departure - barely two years after his party, on the brink of an internal civil war, turned to him as a popular unifier between the feuding factions of conservatives, moderates, libertarians, and populist-nationalists - fits a larger pattern. "He genuinely cares about every American, and we share a belief that conservative ideals will help improve the lives of even our most marginalized populations".
