When Donald Trump became the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for president one month ago, many Republicans like me faced a big question.Does supporting or not supporting Donald Trump help me get reelected?
I've spent most of my adult life pursuing ways to help protect the "American Idea"—the notion that the condition of one's birth does not determine the outcome of one's life.Unless you're a woman, a person of color, queer, trans, disabled, poor, and/or an undocumented immigrant.
That's why next week my colleagues and I will start introducing a series of policy proposals that address the American people's top priorities. These plans are the result of months of work by House Republicans.It doesn't really matter who he is; just as long as he'll sign his name to whatever Orwellian-worded bigotry and social Darwinism we want to legislate.
The concept from the start was simple: If we had a Republican president ready to sign bills into law, what would we do?
It will be a positive, optimistic vision for a more confident America.(I bet!)
To enact these ideas, we need a Republican president willing to sign them into law.Anyone will do. Even Donald Trump. Consider this my enthusiastic endorsement of his ability to hold a pen in his hand and sign his name with it!
I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people's lives. That's why I'll be voting for him this fall.I actually had him demonstrate his ability to sign his name. He can definitely do it. And that's all I care about. So I guess I'm voting for him. Love, Paul Ryan.
