Paul Ryan’s opponent reacts to Trump’s Friday endorsement

Paul Nehlen’s reaction to Donald Trump’s endorsement of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan left some people scratching their heads.

The businessman is challenging Ryan who has represented Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District since 1999. Nehlen has come under the spotlight as Trump praised him while refusing to endorse Ryan, who is expected to win Wisconsin’s congressional primary on Tuesday, by a landslide.

But at a campaign rally in Green Bay on Friday, the Republican presidential nominee gave his formal endorsement of Ryan, and Nehlen’s reaction was reported by CNN’s Jeremy Diamond.

Diamond wasn’t the only one scratching his head.

Other social media users praised Nehlen’s response.

Despite Trump supporters expressing their support for the conservative underdog, Nehlen does not seem like a threat to Ryan, who is well-liked in his district.
