Trump Goes Off On Paul Ryan, 'Rigged Election' In Latest Tweetstorm

Evan Vucci

As Donald Trump's poll numbers suffer in the aftermath of vulgar comments surfaced in a 2005 tape and several accusations of sexual misconduct, the Republican nominee on Sunday lashed out at House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and warned of a "rigged election."

Trump started going after Ryan when the Speaker distanced himself from the GOP nominee after the 2005 tape in which Trump brags about groping women, and Trump has not relented on the Speaker. And he continued to complain about a lack of support from Ryan on Sunday.

Faced with the prospect of losing in November, Trump has also redoubled his warnings of a "rigged election" recently, setting himself up to blame his loss on anything or anyone but himself. On Sunday, Trump published a series of tweets telling supporters that the election has been rigged by the media and the Hillary Clinton campaign, beginning with a tweet bashing Saturday Night Live.
