Trump Attacks “Know Nothing” Paul Ryan On Birthright Citizenship: He Should Focus On Holding The Majority

Newsweek reports:

President Donald Trump lashed out at Paul Ryan on Wednesday, saying the house speaker “knows nothing” about birthright citizenship. Ryan previously went against Trump’s proposed plan to sign an executive order eliminating the right to citizenship for children born in the United States.

In an interview with radio station WVLK on Tuesday, Ryan responded to Trump’s plan to end birthright citizenship, saying he “obviously cannot do that.”

“Well, you obviously cannot do that,” Ryan said. “You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order. We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”
