Speaker Paul Ryan eyeing retirement after 2018 midterm elections

The move would give Ryan another year to pursue entitlement reform - which he's long advocated for - before he returns home "full-time" to spend more time with his three teenage sons, the news outlet posited.

POLITICO reported on Thursday that House Speaker Paul Ryan will retire after the 2018 midterm elections.

Sources close to Ryan have assured Breitbart News that the rumors are not unfounded. "The Speaker assured the President that those were not accurate reports and that they looked forward to working together for a long time to come". Ryan's tenure has been as rocky as that of his predecessor, Rep. John Boehner, who abruptly resigned in 2015 amid GOP infighting.

Washington Post White House reporter, Josh Dawsey, tweeted Thursday that President Trump reacted to the Poltico report with a direct call to Ryan. However, with so many deals left to accomplish - which Ryan will have to reach across the aisle for votes for - and his need to fundraise for the party, he reportedly doesn't want to be seen as a "lame-duck". Those close to the Wisconsin Republican believe he plans to at least serve through election day next year, and ultimately retire before the next Congress is sworn in. An aide to Ryan told CNN.

Walker said Friday he spoke with Ryan and "he's not going anywhere".

"Baby boomers are retiring - I did my part - but we need to have higher birth rates in this country and we have fewer people following them in the workforce", Ryan said.
