Trump: Paul Ryan is far from my first choice for Speaker

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump thinks Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58% is “a very nice guy,” but “far from [his] first choice” to be the next Speaker of the House.

Trump weighed in on the race for House Speaker on Twitter Saturday morning: “Paul Ryan is far from my first choice, but a very nice guy. The Republicans should go for tough and (very) smart this time – no games!”

His tweet comes after CBS News reported that Trump said he would be “okay” with Ryan as Speaker in an interview set to air Sunday on Face the Nation.
