Congressman Steve King of Kiron says it’s an “open question” about what may happen to fellow Republicans who were lukewarm supporters of Donald Trump or part of the “Never Trump” movement.

King, for example, says House Speaker Paul Ryan openly criticized some of Trump’s controversial comments and King isn’t quite ready to vote to retain Ryan as the Republican leader in the House:


OC….FORWARD WITH THAT?

King points to Ryan’s rebuke of Trump’s call last December to ban Muslims from entering the country and King is waiting on Ryan to make building a wall along the southern border an immediate priority.


OC….MAKE A DECISION :09

King and other House Republicans are scheduled to decide who will be their leader next week, but King says it “would be prudent” to delay that vote.


OC….WITHIN OUR CONFERENCE :20

November 15th is the date King and the other members of the House Republican Conference are scheduled to decide whether to keep Ryan as House Speaker.

Ryan and Trump met in Washington Thursday and Ryan has said Republicans in congress will work “hand in hand” with the next president “to advance an agenda to improve the lives of the American people.”
