Charles Benson on divide between Trump and Paul Ryan

Wisconsin's Afternoon News

Republican GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is trailing in polls in Wisconsin and across the country, and he's made numerous appearances in Wisconsin to try and stem that tide to overcome Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

One of those appearances happened Tuesday night in Green Bay, During his appearance, Trump continued his statements about the election being "rigged."

Those are claims Janesville House Speaker Paul Ryan has responded to with "an implicit rebuke," as CNN calls it.

The Trump support in Green Bay was none too happy about it, giving Ryan jeers. He was not at the Trump rally and has avoided calling Trump by name in public events.

"He brings up Paul Ryan's name in Paul Ryan's district and there are some boos in the crowd," said TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson on "Wisconsin's Afternoon News" Tuesday.
"If you are all in for Trump, (you're) really mad at him for distancing himself."
Benson talked about how Ryan has steered clear of Trump, who has not been happy about the move.
"If you look at how Donald Trump has positioned himself, always as the outsider...he has bumped and locked horns with Paul Ryan."
