YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO — Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) is warning Ohio workers they shouldn’t believe Donald Trump’s election promises.

“He will gut you and he will walk over your cold dead body and he won’t even flinch,” Ryan said with a straight face during a pancake breakfast with former President Bill Clinton. Ryan told about 150 people at the Western Reserve Building Trades Hall, “He’ll climb over your cold dead body and get on his helicopter.”

As the crowd was silent, he added, “I don’t mean to be dramatic, but that’s what’s at stake.”

He raged against Trump’s refusal to pay “his damn taxes” and urged everyone to work to elect Hillary Clinton.

“Polls are shifting in Ohio because people are finally starting to pay attention,” he said optimistically.

He drew laughs from the audience, however, when he joked that “the Browns are marching to the Super Bowl.”

After Clinton took the stage, he called Ryan one of his favorite members of Congress.

“He has a good mind and a good heart,” Clinton said.
