After Donald Trump was forced to pull the Republican health care bill before a vote in the House of Representatives last week, it became clear that their was trouble in the GOP. A few days later and the president tweeted for his supporters to watch Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, who ended up calling for the immediate resignation of House Speaker Paul Ryan over the bill's failure.

Pirro clears the air

It's no secret that Donald Trump and establishment Republicans don't always see eye to eye. From the early days of the 2016 presidential election, many conservative lawmakers have come out in opposition to the former host of "The Apprentice," with some forming the failed "Never Trump" movement.

After winning the party's nomination, Trump created even more problems following the release of the Access Hollywood tapes that leaked the president's private sexual thoughts. Paul Ryan was furious, and refused to appear with Trump for the remainder of the campaign. Fast forward to present day and Trump and Ryan have done their best to get on the same page, and despite publicly appearing like teammates, reports have indicated that there is tension behind the scenes. Speculation continued to grow after Trump took to Twitter to encourage his supporters to watch Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, which ended up creating even more controversy. As reported by Mediaite on March 31, Pirro is speaking out.

During an exclusive interview with The Wrap on Friday, Jeanine Pirro attempted to clarify the allegations that she worked with Donald Trump in a coordinated attack against Paul Ryan.

"No! No! No!" Pirro said, insisting that it was just a coincidence that the president promoted her show on the day she was critical of the Speaker of the House. "I had just come from Maine, my daughter is getting married in Maine. I flew to D.C. and someone said, ‘The President tweeted your show,'" Pirro explained.

"I said, 'He did not!,’" she continued, before adding, "And then it was like, ‘Yeah, he did.'" When asked if she thought it was only a coincidence about the timing, Pirro said "Yes," while concluding, "that’s the God’s-honest truth.”

Moving forward

In addition to Jeanine Pirro's comments, Paul Ryan spoke to CBS News over the weekend and confirmed that Donald Trump had personally called him to let him know that his tweet promoting the Fox News show had nothing to do with the comments that were made by the host. While Trump and Ryan seem to have put their problems behind them in public, it's unknown what their relationship is like in private.
