Trump Says he’s “Better Off Without” Support From Paul Ryan and Other Detractors [VIDEO]

Written by Philip Hodges

In an interview with Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump talked about what he meant by a tweet where he said: “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me, and I can now fight for America the way I want to.”

O’Reilly wanted to know what he meant by ‘shackles.’ Trump said he was talking about the GOP establishment who are refusing to support him – like Paul Ryan and John McCain. He said he’s tired of that kind of nonsupport, and that he’s better off without them anyway.

Speaking of Paul Ryan, Trump stated: “I’m just tired of nonsupport, and I don’t really want his support. This happens all the time – if you sneeze, he calls up and announces, ‘Isn’t that a terrible thing?’

“So look, I don’t want his support, I don’t care about his support. What I want to do is I want to win for the people because Hillary Clinton, she is a disaster, she is a disaster and four more years of Obama, which will be worse than Obama, but four more years of Obama through Hillary Clinton, this country can’t take it.”

Trump explained that many of these critics are withdrawing their support from him over his “locker room” talk, which he looks at as trivial in comparison with America’s fight against ISIS, and other pressing issues of the day, such as our border problems, immigration, and the 2nd Amendment.

“If that’s why I’m going to lose an election to get rid of ISIS and to create strong borders and rebuild our military and do all the things we’re going to do – including Supreme Court judges and saving the Second Amendment, because it’s under siege with Hillary Clinton or as I call her Crooked Hillary, which is what she is,” Trump told O’Reilly.

“If that’s what it is going to take to lose an election, that will be pretty sad. Then I have to go back to my other life, but I’ll tell you what, I think we’re going to win the election, Bill. I think we’re going to win the election. People are tired of Obama and they are tired of Clinton.”
