Former House Speaker Paul Ryan has spoken up about the 2024 presidential race and who he plans to support when he walks into the voting booth, and apparently, it isn’t the former president.

“Ryan, a member of the Fox Corporation Board of Directors, will not vote for former President Donald Trump, he told Yahoo on Tuesday at the Milken Institute Global Conference,” Breitbart News reported on Wednesday. Ryan’s recent pledge is an attack on the America First movement. In April, he praised House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) for his leadership, despite his actions leading to Democrats effectively taking control of the House.

Ryan said he will write in a Republican candidate, as he did “last time.” He did not specify any particular person. “Character is too important for me,” Ryan claimed. “[The presidency] is a job that requires the kind of character [Trump] doesn’t have.” He added, “Democracy is being tested in two very specific ways. One within, with our polarization eating each other alive.” Ryan, who is also a vice chairman and partner at Solamere Capital, a private equity firm, noted further: “The second one is from [the outside], from authoritarian regimes who are basically saying they got the mojo, they can make the decisions faster, they can beat democracy.”

Ryan holds significant influence within Fox board. He’s been a member since March 2019, serving as chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. According to Fox Corporation, his authority as a board member includes establishing “broad corporate policies,” setting “strategic direction,” and overseeing “management identification and management of risks.”

Ryan’s position raises questions about why his opinions are not disclosed to viewers during Fox News and Fox Business media coverage, Breitbart noted further.
