‘The shackles have been taken off,’ says Donald Trump. Crushes Republican Party, Paul Ryan in Tweetstorm

After Speaker of the House Paul Ryan publicly pulled his support for Donald Trump after his 'locker room' leak, Trump fired back and used choice words for the GOP via Twitter.

With just under a month left before America heads to the polls to vote for the next POTUS, Donald Trump blasted the Republican party, namely Paul Ryan, calling him ‘weak’, ‘ineffective’, and ‘disloyal’.

Tension between the Republican party and Donald Trump has been palpable since day one. Now Trump has made it very apparent that he has no problem going his own way, with or with the GOP. Trump took to Twitter early this morning to unleash a barrage of criticisms against ‘disloyal’ Republicans, saying, “the shackles have been taken off.”

According to the Hill, a spokesman for Ryan declined to fire back at Donald Trump, but noted that it would probably be better for the GOP if they all were focusing their fire four weeks before Election Day on Democrats instead of their own candidate.

“Paul Ryan is focusing the next month on defeating Democrats, and all Republicans running for office should probably do the same,” the spokesman said.

From Zerohedge:

Trump’s attacks come after a weekend in which Republicans abandoned him droves for the obscene remarks that he apologized for at the debate. Yet the Republican National Committee held an emergency conference call on Monday evening to assure its members the national party is sticking by Trump.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is firmly in Trump’s camp, but is also seen as a close ally of Ryan. Both are from Wisconsin.
