“Speaker Paul Ryan I’ve really come…oh no, I’ve come to appreciate him,” Trump said over the crowd booing when he mentioned Ryan, who attended the event.”He has been, I’ll tell you he has been terrific. Honestly, he’s like a fine wine. Every day goes by, I get to appreciate his genius more and more, but now if he ever goes against me, I’m not going to say that.”
“We’re going to work on taxes, we’re going to work on Obamacare…oh, we’re going to work on the wall, Paul,” Trump added, and the crowd cheered.

Although Ryan was booed in his home state, the crowed cheered for Kanye West, who met with Trump at Trump Tower on Tuesday.
Cheers for Kanye at Trump Wisconsin rally. (That is a sentence I never thought I would type).
