Donald Trump suggested House Speaker Paul Ryan doesn't want him to win the election "because maybe he wants to run in four years," the GOP nominee told ABC News.
"I don't want to be knocking Paul Ryan. I think he could be more supportive to the Republican nominee," Trump told ABC on Monday night. "We are doing well. I think we are gonna win the election."
Trump made the comments to ABC before a campaign rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin Ryan's home turf.
"Maybe he just doesn't know how to win. I mean, who can really know. But I know I'm in his territory and they are all screaming for Trump," he told ABC.
Trump ally and Fox News host Sean Hannity took it a step further, accusing Ryan of "sabotaging" Trump's campaign.
Ryan, for his part, remains mum on the subject of Trump after a controversial conference call with House membership during which he said he would no longer defend nor campaign with the GOP nominee.
Ryan's stated goal the last few weeks of the election is ensuring the GOP maintains its majority in both the House and the Senate.
