LOS ANGELES (AP) – Since the chaotic end of Donald Trump’s presidency, the debate over the future of the Republican Party has often fallen into a simple milestone. Do you support Trump, his “America First Agenda” or not?
Former US House Speaker Paul Ryan believes that the history of his divided party: will continue to move forward.
In an interview with The Associated Press, the debate over Trump’s allegiance is either “going to die out,” the 2012 Republican presidential candidate said. “I think the circumstances, the ideas and the new candidates are going to … overshadow that whole conversation.”
The calculation of what it means to be a Republican, how a party can rebuild, is the inevitable result of the 2020 defeats that left the White House and Congress in democratic control.
Assessing the path to progress is “a normal growing pain for a party that comes from losing the presidency,” Ryan said. “I think it is wrong to assume that this party is divided around one person.”
His views on the GOP will be presented next month as part of a series of speakers at Ronald Reagan’s Presidential Library, which reopens after a year-long epidemic. Discussed. What is the future Republican Party?
Those in the podium will be the list of possible 2024 presidential candidates, including former Vice President Mike Pence, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former UN Ambassador, and South Carolina Governor Nicki Hale.

“We find ourselves in a moment when the Republican Party is not leading,” Zak Akheim added. “Where does the Republican Party succeed, where does it fail?” What are some of the philosophies that we can all agree on? ”
The foundation said in a statement that the forum would provide a platform for “re-establishing the Republican Party as a true, modern Conservative Party with ideas worthy of the support of the American people.”
The stage of the event will have a symbolic weight. The former Republican president and his wife, Nancy Reagan, are buried in a library on top of the hill in Simi Valley, which celebrates his conservative legacy – all of Reagan’s things.
“Many people on the right have fallen into the trap of identity politics. “It is divisive, so it is immoral from the beginning, but it does not work in the long run,” Ryan said.
“If you’re building a local political movement … you have to try to involve everyone with better principles, better ideas, better solutions,” said Ryan, who sits on a library board, pointing to Reagan as a political loser.
On May 27, Ryan will take the oath of office for the Library’s Time Selection Forum, named after Reagan in 1964. Speech in support of Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign. The other speakers will follow up on future dates.
Inevitably, Trump will be in the background. The former president mocked that he could try to return in 2024, “the party is divided among its loyalists”, who continue to propagate his baseless allegations of electoral fraud, where congressional oversight is often determined.
The former speaker pointed out that the Republicans won seats in the House in 2020, even when Trump was knocking. Ryan, who left Congress in January 2019 and is now a visitor to the American Enterprise Institute, had a tense, controversial relationship with Trump. The former president, in turn, was critical of Ryan when he headed the House.
Ryan seemed suspicious when asked if he could become a 2024 player. “I’m really happy with where I am,” he said.
“The Biden administration has moved far to the left, and I think that will help us win the Congress,” Ryan said, noting that the White House party usually loses Congress seats in by-elections.
“It will take us several years to find out who we are and what we believe in.” Ryan said. “My … hope is that we will come together around a set of principles, ideas and policies, not just one person.”
