President Donald Trump on Thursday blasted former House Speaker Paul Ryan for not letting Republicans "go tougher" on Democrats.

"Paul Ryan wouldn't give the right to have any subpoenas," Trump told Breitbart News in an interview.

Trump did not specify what Ryan's colleagues wanted to investigate, but he said Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mark Meadows, R-N.C., "wanted to go tougher, but they weren't allowed to by leadership."

"So, here's the thing — it's so terrible what's happening. You know, the left plays a tougher game, it's very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don't play it tougher," he continued.

"OK? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad," Trump said.

"The left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress . . . with all this [investigating] — that's all they want to do is — you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this," he added.

Ryan has not publicly responded to Trump's remarks.
