Paul Ryan Challenger Nehlen: He ‘Took Money away from Vets and Gave It to’ Illegals
Paul Ryan Challenger Nehlen: He "Took Money Away From Veterans and Gave It To Illegal Immigrants" (RealClearPolitics)
Paul Nehlen, who is challenging Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in the Republican primary for the 1st Congressional district of Wisconsin, told FOX News Thursday morning that Ryan takes care of "hedgefund people and illegal aliens" before veterans and citizens. Nehlen recounted a story where a veteran went to Capitol Hill to confront Paul Ryan and demand he put "veterans first."
"What is one of the first things that Speaker Ryan did in office?" Nehlen rhetorically asked. "He took money from omnibus, took money away from veterans and gave it to illegal aliens."
"How did he do that?" FOX & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked.
"He took money away from the veterans," Nehlen responded. "It's a matter of public record. He then engineered a bailout for Puerto Rico for the very wealthy mall owners in Puerto Rico and what ended up happening there is those are the same people who are funding amnesty. So a Navy SEAL goes to Washington and asked him to take care of veterans first, and what does he do? He takes care of hedge fund people and he takes care of illegal aliens."
