Trump Threatens Paul Ryan, Says Speaker Will Pay 'Big Price' if He Gets in His Way

"...I’m sure I’m going to get along great with him. And if I don’t?"

Republican front-runner Donald Trump threatened House Speaker Paul Ryan during his Super Tuesday press conference, saying the Wisconsin Republican would pay a "big price" if he refused to get along with him as president.

"Paul Ryan, I don’t know him well, but I’m sure I’m going to get along great with him," Trump said. "And if I don’t? He’s gonna have to pay a big price, OK?”

The billionaire was responding to comments Ryan made earlier in the day when he said any nominee of the Republican Party should be quick to condemn racist groups, a reference to Trump's refusal to disavow himself from the KKK on a Sunday program (he later did so).

A spokesperson for Ryan's office declined to comment to TheBlaze on Trump's threat Tuesday night.
