Krauthammer’s Take: Ryan-Trump Détente Is a ‘Sham Marriage’

“I’m not among the many who thought it smoothed over the divide — yes, it did rhetorically,” Charles Krauthammer made clear tonight on Fox News’s Special Report. “But whenever you’re talking about a ‘process’ what you mean is ‘we did not conclude peace.’”

Krauthammer was skeptical of the chances of a permanent accord between the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, and the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.

“This is a sham marriage and the reason is simple: Good will on both sides, but Paul Ryan is a conservative. . . . Trump has made clear he’s not a conservative, he’s a nationalist-populist,” Krauthammer continued.
