Now out of office and trading in his power suits for a blue vest, Ryan is back to critiquing Trump in unflattering terms in conversations with Alberta, who writes the former speaker could not stand the idea of another two years with the president and saw retirement as an "escape hatch", in Alberta's words.
Ryan told Alberta that Trump knew nothing about how government works when he became president in 2017. In conversations with Alberta after retirement, Ryan, who had served almost two decades in Congress, claimed Trump, a former real estate mogul, was ignorant about politics. "Couldn't get him out of Congress fast enough!" he concluded. "Because, I'm telling you, he didn't know anything about government".
"I wanted to scold him all the time", he added.
Ryan condemns Trump in "American Carnage", by Tim Alberta of Politico. "For him to be going out and opening his mouth is pretty incredible". "Maybe he gets paid for that". In a three-tweet barrage, Trump called Ryan's leadership "atrocious", labeled him a "lame duck failure" and suggested he was thrilled when Ryan left Capitol Hill.
"He had the Majority & blew it away with his poor leadership and bad timing", Trump tweeted. "Never knew how to go after the Dems like they go after us", Trump added.

Ryan had no comment Friday on the president's tweets about him, his spokesman Brendan Buck said.
The volley of insults marks the nadir of a volatile relationship between Trump and the former top-ranking House Republican, who pushed the party to dump the real estate mogul after the "Access Hollywood" tape and refused to campaign with the presidential nominee, but then later battled to push Trump's agenda through Congress.
Following Ryan's retirement announcement previous year, Trump tweeted: "Speaker Paul Ryan is a truly good man, and while he will not be seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question". All the time. We helped him make much better decisions, which were contrary to kind of what his knee-jerk reaction was.
"We need to move from an opposition party to a proposition party", Ryan said at the time.
Trump unloaded on Ryan on Twitter late Thursday and to reporters Friday morning just before heading to Ryan's home state of Wisconsin, a pivotal state in the president's reelection bid.
