Trump is Right on One Thing: Ryan is No Friend to Seniors

By: Meredith Kelly

Has Donald Trump been referencing in his ongoing quest to take the Speaker down a few notches after his vaguely anti-Trump speech to interns last week? According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Donald Trump said the following about Ryan’s anti-seniors record during a radio interview yesterday:

“Paul wants to knock out Social Security, knock it down, way down, wants to knock Medicare way down … you’re going to lose the election if you do that.”

As always, Trump’s statement lacks nuance, but he’s not entirely wrong here – Ryan wants to privatize Social Security, and according to the Wall Street Journal, his budget “would essentially end Medicare.”
