King tried to get Ryan to throw the president under the bus, asking him if "Trump fatigue" played a role in his decision to not run for reelection.

"I have given this job everything I have", Ryan said.

Vice President Mike Pence is calling outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan a "true patriot" and crediting Ryan for advancing the conservative agenda for more than two decades.

Tapper asked, "First, I want to get your thoughts on - The New York Times is reporting the Federal Bureau of Investigation when it raided the offices of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen they were looking for information about the "Access Hollywood" tape and possibly attempts by Cohen to suppress damaging information about Mr. Trump". Ryan's approval among Republican voters now hovers around 7 in 10, and his overall approval rating is below that of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi in some polls.

Ryan, who seemed incapable of counter arguing, simply said he wasn't happy she felt excluded.

McConnell describes Ryan as "a humble servant and a happy warrior" and says he's pleased Ryan will be serving out his term because "our work together is far from finished".

"Paul Ryan has never been more vulnerable", Bryce campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt told Mediaite. They may think they can run, but I doubt they can hide. "I'm going to keep being involved and focusing on inclusive, aspirational politics".

McCarthy lodged a bid to succeed former Speaker John Boehner in 2015 but withdrew after conservatives balked.

In recent months, Ryan has generally been more frank about the tensions of his job in private. Even if the Republicans retain a slim majority next year, Ryan's longstanding ambition to cut back on entitlements like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is a non-starter.

"I have given this job everything I have", he said. Ryan says he will serve out his term and retire in January.

"Despite our differences, I commend his steadfast commitment to our country", she said in a statement. Now, all three of his children are teenagers.

Swan and Allen said a senior GOP House member predicted, "He will be gone by the end of July".

It's unlikely that the two sides will compromise on much legislation in an election year.

Rep. Tyler August, speaker pro tempore of the state Assembly, announced today he will not run for the 1st Congressional District seat being vacated by Paul Ryan, and instead will run for re-election. "We don't resort to scaring you, we dare to inspire you".

Ryan, the House speaker, appeared on CBS This Morning on Thursday to discuss his recently-announced retirement plans with host Gayle King.

"You were one of the main people that said you wanted to do more for the Republican Party-you wanted to expand the base", King reminded Ryan. Ryan had made tax cuts a centerpiece of his legislative agenda, and Congress delivered on that late a year ago.

"Right now the last thing I'm thinking about is running for something", Ryan said. Both sought anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
