John Heilemann: Paul Ryan Only Opposes Tariffs Because of GOP’s ‘Corporate Wing’

‘Why does Paul Ryan have a spine on tariffs? Because the Republican donor class cares about tariffs’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
HEILEMANN: "The FBI needs to be cleansed and purged, those are words that came out of Paul Ryan's mouth. I will say one thing. One difference, here, why does Paul Ryan have a spine on tariffs? Because the Republican donor class cares about tariffs. That's one thing he has consistent, on tax cuts or something like this where the corporate wing of the Republican Party is deeply concerned about the tariffs issue. Ryan will find his soul and spine on that."
