Donald Trump Blasts Paul Ryan; Says His "Shackles" Have Now Been Removed

The Hollywood Reporter

Donald Trump was on Twitter early Tuesday morning, criticizing Paul Ryan for, in his opinion, not supporting the GOP presidential nominee.  

Calling the House Speaker both "very weak and ineffective," Trump said it is hard for him to do well in the polls when he has "zero" support from Ryan.

The Wisconsin politician has not withdrawn his endorsement of Trump, yet, but he has distanced himself from the billionaire businessman after Trump's latest scandal involving a recording from 2005 in which the then-Apprentice host makes vulgar comments about women. 

Other high-ranking Republicans, such as Sen. John McCain, have pulled their endorsement after the tape was brought to light last week by The Washington Post.

After he blasted Ryan, Trump said in an ominous tweet that he was now free to be himself. 

"It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to," Trump said. 

He followed that post by taking a shot at the Republican Party as a whole. 

"With the exception of cheating Bernie out of the nom the Dems have always proven to be far more loyal to each other than the Republicans!" Trump tweeted. 

Hours later, Trump turned his sights to McCain, tweeting, "The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!"

Trump made even more headlines during the second presidential debate this week when he invited women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault to the event. At the debate, Trump brought up the accusations to Hillary Clinton and made mention of the women's presence.

Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!

Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty.
