The most powerful Republican in Congress has drawn a line in the sand against the leader of the Republican party – if Donald Trump tries to carry out any of his more insane policies, Paul Ryan has said he “would sue!”
Ryan said he wasn’t sure of the “legal question” of whether Trump could institute a Muslim ban on his own as president.
“That’s a legal question that there’s a good debate about,” he said, citing the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act.
“On the broader question, are we going to exert our Article I powers and reclaim this Article I power no matter who the president is? Absolutely,” Ryan said. He also said he discussed the limits of the executive power with Trump.
