President Donald Trump on Wednesday ripped Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., a day after Ryan said the president could not eliminate birthright citizenship with an executive order.

“Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about!” the president said. “Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!”

You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” Ryan said in an interview with a Kentucky radio station Tuesday. “We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”
