Donald Trump Slams Paul Ryan's Budget Proposal

Donald Trump slammed Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) this morning on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” over the Chairman of the House Budget Committee’s latest federal budget proposal. 

“I don’t like his timing,” the reality TV show host/ presidential hopeful said. 

“I think for him to do that just before the election puts a tremendous negative spin on the Republicans.  I think that it’s, you know, fine you come out and do the budget, but you don’t do it at this time.  I can tell you the Democrats are sitting back and laughing — they can’t believe their luck.  So this is not the time to be discussing the kind of things he’s discussing.”
