Former President Donald Trump slammed Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) for saying Ohio voters need to “kill and confront” the MAGA movement, calling Ryan a “militant left-winger” during a Save America rally in Ohio on Saturday.
Trump urged Ohio voters to support Republican J. D. Vance instead of Ryan, “the far left Democrat phony running for the United States Senate.”
Trump noted that Ryan is running on “I love Donald Trump policy,” but called the Ohio congressman out for voting in lockstep with President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
Trump also called Ryan out for falsely campaigning as a Trump-aligned candidate, despite his pro-Democrat voting record in the House.

Trump pointed out that Ryan voted more with Biden than he did with Trump when Trump was in office.
“He is not a moderate. He is radical left, 100 percent voted for these Biden disaster policies. Tim Ryan pretends to be for Trump. But when I was president, he only voted with us 16% of the time and these are great policies for Ohio,” Trump said. “And over the last two years he has voted with Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest every single time. It doesn’t matter on what, it doesn’t matter how bad it is.”… (Read more)
