Speaker Ryan on Trump's Frequent Tweets: 'They're Growing on Me'
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said today he's getting used to President Donald Trump's frequent tweeting.
Ryan said the president has found an effective way to communicate directly with the American people.
"They are growing on me. Like I tell everyone, this is going to be an unconventional president," said Ryan in a "Fox & Friends" interview.
Ryan added, "He is giving voice to people who feel they haven’t been listened to in this country and I think that’s an amazing thing and I think that’s largely what he is able to accomplish with Twitter."
Ryan said he's "never seen anything like" the fiscal changes Trump has been proposing when it comes to defense spending.
"I have never seen anything like this before. ... This is what you get when you have a business guy in office," he said.
Steve Doocy asked Ryan whether tax reform and other agenda items could be pushed back to 2018.
"I don’t know who’s saying that, but that’s not the case," said Ryan, explaining that lawmakers have put forward a 200-day plan because of the way the budget process works.
Ryan said ObamaCare "repeal and replace" remains the immediate priority.
