Friday on the Fox Business Network, former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR), a former candidate for the 2016 Republican nomination, reacted to House Speaker Paul Ryan not endorsing likely presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump when he had the opportunity a day earlier on CNN.
“Lead, follow or get the heck out of the way,” Huckabee said. “I’m sorry to be so blunt, but he’s the speaker, that means he’s the leader. Then lead.”
Huckabee went on to explain that he saw it as Ryan’s responsibility to lead his House colleagues to support the party and called on them to support the entire Republican slate.
“Lead the members of Congress to support our party. Let’s support the entire ticket. Let’s support every person running for governor, every person running for senator and every person running for Congress, and let’s support our nominee for president. Let’s support our entire ticket, that’s when it works best.”
