President Trump slammed outgoing Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Wednesday; saying the GOP leader “knows nothing” about the legal debate surrounding “birthright citizenship” for non-residents in the United States.
“Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!” tweeted the president.
Ryan dismissed President Trump’s plan to issue an executive order to curb “birthright citizenship” Tuesday, saying the Commander-in-Chief “obviously cannot do that.”
“You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order. We didn’t like it when [former President Barack Obama] tried changing immigration laws via executive action and obviously as conservatives we believe in the Constitution,” said Ryan.
