House Speaker Paul Ryan announces his retirement

President Donald Trump answers questions with House Majority Leader Kevin Mc Carthy before having dinner at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach

Additional household Republicans assert that Ryan's announced retirement, after roughly 2 years Congress, would reduce his ability to boost funds - a action that yields millions of dollars for GOP candidates. "What was the surprise was that he was announcing it before the election..." Ryan had to navigate the waters of a party that was not only fighting from within, but that was hijacked by a president whose erratic behavior has never been helpful.

"I don't like the fact that you feel that way", Ryan told King.

"Bad idea", said Republican Representative Charlie Dent.

After President Donald Trump tweeted a photo of himself along all white, male members of the Republican leadership, the ever-present concern regarding the GOP's failure to include minorities was once again brought up. He is an adult who, despite being dealt a hard hand, was by far the best speaker since Newt Gingrich.

His departure likely will lead to a battle to replace him as House Speaker.

Ryan's deferential relationship with Trump unsafe to America's political healthWisconsin Republicans' golden boy and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is once again under fire for his deference to Read...

It is indicative of Trump's impact on the Republican Party that Ryan, the vice presidential nominee in 2012, now faces an uncertain political future only two years after being considered a rising star.

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus have grown frustrated that Ryan failed to fulfill promises to move Congress radically to the right after Republicans won complete control in Washington, D.C. Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters Wednesday that leadership isn't on his "bucket list" but he refused to say whether he plans to run for speaker. And now, like more and more fellow Republicans in the House, he is abandoning ship. "And you were one of the main people that said you wanted to do more for the Republican Party, to expand the base". "It's just another issue that's floating out there, and obviously there's going to be some competition for his successor". "This is going to make every Republican donor believe the House can't be held". Just because he'll be leaving office, Ryan said, doesn't mean he will stop working toward that goal. But the whip's aides said while he and Ryan spoke Thursday morning, Scalise said nothing privately that differed from his public remarks, seemingly suggesting Ryan had gone too far.

Democrat Randy Bryce, a colorful ironworker who has cultivated an "IronStache" moniker, had been Ryan's best-known challenger, drawing liberal support from around the country.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Ryan announced he will retire after this Congress ends in January because he wants to spend more time with his family.

Conservatives may actually desire that the speakership vote to be held following the elections, even to give associates that are new, " a vote, perhaps not outgoing ones.
