It's no secret that there are many Republicans who are nothing more than Republicans in name only aka RINOs. Many of them would claim to support President Trump, at least in some regard. Then there are others who just don't support him at all. Those are people like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
But by and large, most of them would at least profess some level of support for President Trump. One of these RINOs is former House Speaker and former Vice Presidential candidate, Paul Ryan.
With all of the talk about whether or not President Trump is going to run again in 2024, Paul Ryan decided to weigh in. He said that regardless of whether or not he runs again, he won't be the nominee.
The Daily Caller reported,
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday that former President Donald Trump will likely lose the Republican presidential primary race in 2024 and, failing that, the general election should he decide to run again.
“Whether he runs or not, I don’t really know if it matters,” Ryan stated. “He’s not going to be the nominee, I don’t think.” Ryan made the comments during an appearance with Kevin Kajiwara, CEO of Teneo, the public affairs consulting firm of which Ryan is vice chairman, at their office in Manhattan.
Ryan also accused Trump of using “fear and intimidation” to maintain political influence over the Republican Party, which he predicted would end poorly. “Whenever you try to do that, it ends the way Hemingway talked about bankruptcy,” he said, “it goes along for a while until it [steeply] drops.”

But honestly, Ryan is about as much as a RINO as any of the rest. Whatever support he has appeared to have for President Trump just seems to be for show anyway. Paul Ryan was actually involved in pushing the fake Steele dossier and has even said in the past that he couldn't support him because of the bogus dossier.
