Huckabee to Ryan: ‘Lead, follow or get the heck out of the way’

Trump surrogate Mike Huckabee blasted Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Friday over his refusal to commit to backing Donald Trump.

{mosads}“Lead, follow or get the heck out of the way,” Huckabee said of Ryan in an interview with Fox Business. “I’m sorry to be so blunt, but he’s the Speaker, that means he’s the leader. Then lead.

“Lead the members of Congress to support our party. Let’s support the entire ticket. Let’s support every person running for governor, every person running for senator and every person running for Congress, and let’s support our nominee for president. Let’s support our entire ticket, that’s when it works best.”

The former presidential candidate and Arkansas governor’s call for party unity comes a day after Ryan said in an interview with CNN that he “wasn’t ready” to back Trump.
