Trump: Ryan Praised Me, I'm Tired of Advice
 

Sunday, 15 May 2016 11:07 AM

Donald Trump told Maureen Dowd of The New York Times Friday that during his recent meeting with Paul Ryan, the Speaker was interested in how he had won the primary.

Trump told columnist Dowd, “We talked about the success I’ve had. Paul said to me that he has never seen anything like it because I’m a non-politician and I beat very successful politicians.

“He was really fascinated by how I won. I said, it’s just like I have good ideas and I’ve bonded with the people and my people are very loyal. They will stay through thick and thin, whereas the people that support Marco and Cruz wouldn’t. If Jeb sneezed, they’d leave.”

Dowd suggested Ryan’s motive in understanding Trump’s success is connected to his own plans to run for president in 2020.

Trump, who Dowd calls ‘Mogul, — a reference to his Secret Service code name — is not interested in fresh advice from GOP insiders, according to the columnist.

Asked about Texas Senator John Cornyn’s "tips on how to discuss illegal immigration," Trump responded: "I love getting advice. It’s just what I need, just what I need is more advice. The 17 people I beat are still giving me advice."

Trump also told Dowd he wasn’t taken by former Secretary of State James Baker’s insights after a brief encounter.

"I was more interested in asking him about Ronald and Nancy Reagan and the whole Reagan era than I was in terms of getting advice currently," Trump told Dowd.
