What you are reading and what you are about to watch really just happened.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has been under heavy scrutiny lately, even dating back to the 2016 predsidential election campaign. His own party has accused him of being a RINO (Republican in Name Only), and a traitor, as he has flip-flopped and in some cases outright opposed President Trump on agenda issues.
But, after witnessing the situation that has wrecked the country slowly over the last eight years, that situation being our Southern border, Ryan posted a video confirming to the American people that he had seen enough.
President Trump was right about the Southern border all along, and Paul Ryan admits it.
As Speaker Paul Ryan puts it simply: “It’s time for the wall.”
According to Breitbart:
In a 30-second video of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (D-WI) visit to the southern border of the United States posted online on Tuesday, Ryan said that border patrol agents “need more tools … to do their jobs effectively” and vows to “get this done this week.”
But the name of the video reads like a Trump campaign slogan: “It’s Time for the Wall” and notes that there are 1,954 miles of southern border between the United States and Mexico.
“I had the opportunity to travel down to Texas, to go to the Rio Grande Valley; spend time with our border patrol,” Ryan said as an EDM beat plays in the background. “When you see what they’re up against it really gives you even greater respect for what they do.
“They clearly need more tools and more support to do their job effectively,” Ryan said. “That’s why we’re going to get this done this week.”
“It’s time for The [sic] Wall,” the text accompanying the video reads. “That’s why the House voted to fully fund the Trump administration’s request to build it.”

Better late than never.
The bigger question here is, is Ryan sincere? Or, is this just a re-election scheme?
There is already chatter everywhere claiming that this is a re-election stunt, and that Ryan cannot be trusted, as he has shown in the past. But let’s just wait and see what happens now that this video is out!
Now if we could just have the vote for the Obamacare repeal happen again much closer to re-election time next year, it might just pass with overwhelming support!
So, is he lying to save his embattled political career, or this a tipping point for the Speaker?
