House Speaker Paul Ryan should be handed his walking papers for not implementing President Donald Trump's agenda fast enough, the commander in chief's former political adviser Sam Nunberg tells Newsmax TV.
Asked by Newsmax TV's J.D. Hayworth on Tuesday how real the GOP's resistance is to getting Trump's legislation passed, Nunberg said, "It's actually funny, ironic. I've criticized Paul Ryan and I'll continue to criticize Paul Ryan. If it was up to me, Paul Ryan wouldn't be the speaker."
But Nunberg, an attorney, believes the Republican House wheel may finally be turning in Trump's favor.
"They're actually getting more legislation through the House right now and they're moving faster on taxes. I even think they're going to be moving faster on infrastructure," he told Hayworth.

Even with House support however, the Senate needs to cooperate – something that is not a fait accompli, according to Nunberg.
"I think the Senate is where you really see the problem with the Republican Party, where it's a Republican Party that's really at the end of the day very corporatist, it's not against a large government, and it's more about special interests," Nunberg said.
"So if we don't get anything out of the Senate, the problem for the president is going to be is the people, his supporters are going to say, ‘but you're the dealmaker, you're supposed to get things done, get results.' He's in a very hard situation here.
"I think he should impress on [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell that there are certain things the president can do to make his life terrible... just say look, it's time to get results and I don't want to hear any more excuses."
