Paul Ryan reflected on his time to collaborate with Donald Trump in a book he would announce on Tuesday and claimed that he often had to hold back so that he would not & # 39; shatter & # 39 ;.
The former home president, who decided not to run for re-election when the 2018 midterms approached, said how often he felt frustrated to serve in Republican leadership with Trump at the helm.
& # 39; I told myself to have a relationship with this man to help him get his mind right, & # 39; Ryan told author Tim Alberta, according to The Washington Post. & # 39; Because I tell you he didn't know anything about the government.
& # 39; I wanted to swear at him all the time, & # 39; the 49-year-old continued.
Former home president Paul Ryan revealed that he often wanted to shout Donald Trump & # 39; when the two worked together
I'm telling you, he didn't know anything about the government, & Ryan said. & # 39; I wanted to swear at him all the time & # 39;
Ryan expressed these feelings to author Tim Alberta, whose book & # 39; American Carnage & # 39; will appear on Tuesday – and includes conversations he had with Ryan
Alberta & # 39; s book, & # 39; American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump, & # 39; is scheduled for next week, but an earlier copy was obtained by the Post this week.
Ryan, who represented Wisconsin during his time in Congress, said the situation with Trump has only worsened.
& # 39; Those of us around him have really helped to prevent him from making the wrong decisions. Always, & # 39; Ryan said, adding that members of the GOP and Trump administration often had to force him & # 39; make better decisions & # 39 ;.
Since leaving Congress, Ryan says "He is now making some of these reflex responses".
In his interview, the former representative, who was first elected to Congress in 1999, also gave some advice to Trump.
He told the president to stop cheating – both for his wife and for other aspects of his life – and told him to stop insulting and humiliating women.
& # 39; Those of us around him have really helped to prevent him from making the wrong decisions. Always, & # 39; says Ryan. & # 39; We helped him make much better decisions that contradicted his reflex response. Now I think he makes some of these reflex reactions. & # 39;
Ryan was elected Republican representative in Wisconsin in 1999 and decided not to meet his ninth term in the 2018 mid-term elections.
Alberta said Ryan saw the farewell to Congress as a & # 39; escape hatch & # 39; because he had to work for Trump for another two years – at least
Trump and Ryan had a complicated relationship – both needed each other to get legislation during the two years that there was a republican controlled house, a senate, and a white house. But both despise each other for different reasons

Trump and Ryan had a very hot-headed relationship – and the Catholic speaker even ended up canceling his first planned public appearance with the then-candidate when the Access Hollywood tape came into existence, where Trump insisted he could get away with assault because he was rich and was famous.
& # 39; It made us so stupid & # 39 ;, Ryan says in the upcoming book. & # 39; Not in government, but where we live our lives, we have a responsibility to try and rebuild. & # 39;
& # 39; Don't call a woman & # 39; horse face & # 39 ;. Don't cheat on your wife. Don't fall for something. Be a good person. Set the right example, & # 39; he mentioned examples to improve.

However, the two often had to come together to pass Republican legislation through Congress, since the GOP had the majority for a short time in both the house, the senate and the White House.
On one important occasion, Trump finally agreed in the spring of 2018 to sign a spending account that did not take into account border wall financing that he wanted so badly to get through – but only after Ryan had given him time to build tension on Twitter .
Alberta wrote that Ryan saw retirement as a & # 39; escape hatch & # 39; to work with Trump for at least another two years.
