Donald Trump Won’t Change Platform to Appease Speaker Ryan Audio

During Friday morning’s interview with Donald Trump on Breitbart News Daily, SirusXM host Stephen K. Bannon suggested House Speaker Paul Ryan withheld his endorsement to pressure Trump into dropping his positions on trade, the border wall with Mexico, bringing jobs back from China, and temporarily restricting Muslim immigration.

“You go to upstate New York, and you go to Pennsylvania, and you go to Connecticut, and all these different places, and you see empty factories all over the place,” he said. He added:
You see empty factories like you wouldn’t believe. I’ve never seen anything like it. As a real-estate person, I said, “Wow, I could probably buy that building for three dollars.” As a real-estate person, as a person that gets it from a business standpoint, it’s so sad to see.
“What did it was NAFTA,” he charged, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement from the Nineties. “And other things, and bad, you know, very stupid trade policies. NAFTA’s a disaster. And who signed NAFTA? Bill Clinton. NAFTA is a disaster.
He said he was not going to compromise his core positions to win Ryan’s support in the name of party unity because those are the positions he presented to the voters who chose him.
“Look, I ran on strong borders. I ran on really great trade deals,” said Trump. “By the way, I’m for free trade. If he likes free trade, that’s fine. But we can’t make good free trade deals. We’re getting killed at every level.”
