Paul Ryan reportedly did not have very nice things to say about President Trump, according to leaked excerpts from Tim Alberta’s new book “American Carnage.”

In his book, Alberta highlighted statements that he said are from the former House Speaker that specifically target President Trump.

According to the book, Ryan said, “I told myself I gotta have a relationship with this guy to help him get his mind right. Because, I’m telling you, he didn’t know anything about government … I wanted to scold him all the time.”

The author, who has been known to be opposed to Trump, also wrote that Ryan criticized the President’s “knee jerking reactions” that he thinks are happening more since retiring as House Speaker. And that he and others “helped to stop him from making bad decisions. All the time.”

In a string of tweets, Trump fired back after being informed of the possible criticism from Ryan.

“He had the Majority & blew it away with his poor leadership and bad timing,” the President continued. “Never knew how to go after the Dems like they go after us. Couldn’t get him out of Congress fast enough!”
