In an interview on FOX Business’ “The Evening Edit, American Majority CEO Ned Ryun commended the RNC for calling Sanders out saying, “This is very un-American and this is something again that we need to be calling them out on.”

“This never works,” Ryun said on Friday. This is the staggering part to me really.

The Vermont senator refused to condemn embattled Venezuela President Nicolás Maduro as the President Trump and other officials have criticized the South American leader. Ryun claimed, “Again we’re seeing this play out in Venezuela. We are seeing a real life experience right in front of us.”
