Congressman Darrell Issa Says Donald Trump Is 'Not the Voice,' But 'a Voice' of GOP

Issa went on to say that he looks forward to helping Trump become president.

“His voice is the voice of the man we will put before the voters to be president of the United States,” the California congressman, who supports Trump, said in an interview on ABC News’ “Powerhouse Politics” podcast.

Issa went on to say that he looks forward to helping Trump become president, but clarified they are not a “team.”

“Paul Ryan takes very seriously, as I do, the fact that we are a separate co-equal, and when Donald Trump is president, he will face some of the same pushback from time to time,” Issa said. “We’re not a team and we’re not a rubber stamp.”

“I’m confident that Speaker Ryan either will have, or will support the nominee with an endorsement,” he said.

He added: “Paul Ryan is going to be a unifier ... that will include the endorsement of Donald Trump, not later than the third day of the convention.”

Issa also weighed in on who Trump should select as his running mate, saying it’s important to pick somebody who covers your “political wing” and can “bring a state.”
