Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said he was "seriously considering" running for president in an interview Wednesday with CNN's Erin Burnett. Ryan said the country is divided and that a divided country is a "weak country."
REP. TIM RYAN (D-OH): I don't feel any pressure for any timeline at this point, but I am seriously considering it.
The country is divided. We can't get anything done because of these huge divisions that we have, and people in communities like the ones I represent, Erin, are suffering because of this division. You can't win the future divided.
You know, a divided country is a weak country, and I'm concerned about that. I don't feel any pressure to make any particular announcement anytime soon, but it is something I'm really worried about. I mean, the debate you had a few minutes ago about the economy where you have 400 people in the country who have more wealth than the bottom 150 million. You know, workers want cut in on the deal here, and they haven't been for 30 years. So it's something I'm considering.
