I agree with most of this, except for Ryan.

Lisa Chacón, thanks. I agree Ryan is putting lukewarm support behind Trump for now but it’s out of political necessity.

Ryan and Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are already opposing plans of Trump like his tariffs. If a real conservative like Kasich was available, I think there’s a good chance Ryan and Republican leaders correctly decide Kasich is much easier to work with. Trump voters would be furious and then get through it, as the country has repeatedly through challenges, including a civil war and two global wars.
