"I am announcing today that this year will be my last one in the House", said Mr Ryan, the 2012 Republican US vice presidential nominee and long-time legislator from Wisconsin.
But the praise did little to remove the shadow Trump casts over the end of Ryan's career now that he has made a decision to forego a campaign for reelection.
Back in his Southeastern Wisconsin district, Ryan was facing a spirited challenge from two Democrats, Randy Bryce, better known by his Twitter handle, "Iron Stache", and a schoolteacher, Cathy Myers.
In House Speaker Paul Ryan's hometown of Janesville, residents are reacting to his surprise announcement.
Ryan has not sent Trump clear message that any attempt by the president to quash the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller is an attack on the rule of law.
Property Speaker Paul Ryan claims he'll continue being the most effective Republican in the room until slumping in January, despite calls for a direction transition and also queries from inside his caucus regarding a dragged-out course of action harming the celebration at the November mid-terms.
Rep. Charlie Dent, a moderate Republican from Pennsylvania who is also retiring, noted the difficulty of Ryan's position. We are proud of Paul and the work he has achieved over the years.
"Instead of playing to your anxieties, we can appeal to your aspirations".
After he became one of the most powerful people in the nation, however, Speaker Paul Ryan did nothing on immigration except to front for President [Donald] Trump's nativism. "We all know that I did not seek this job, I took it reluctantly but I have given this job everything that I have". So did Trump's former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, who once lived in the district.
The protests Ryan offered rarely had an impact. Lamb won in part by hammering Ryan and the GOP majority as a threat to Social Security and Medicare. It's why we have Trump, and why Ryan was forced to acquiesce to a man whose statements he once condemned as racist and whose personal life is the antithesis of his own. Ryan was once viewed as the future of the party, and he now is a rudder for a party regularly tossed about by Trump's shifting impulses.
For many Republicans, Ryan has been "a steady force in contrast to the president's more mercurial tone", said Rep. Mark Sanford of SC. Despite the Republican precarious position Ryan received praise from across Washington.
Rep. Amodei said, according to rumors, Ryan "wants to play on the national stage in some capacity or another".
Though Ryan's public persona has been characterized, off-and-on, as something of a serious and deep thinker on issues related to poverty, taxation, and welfare policy, his record - and now legacy - in public life is one of consistent cruelty.
In 2014, Ryan displayed his callous disregard for the suffering of poor and hungry Americans when he argued against progressive budget proposals that urged giving low-income students free lunches. At points, they seemed to be commiserating about the difficulty of working in the current political environment. But he said he is proud both measures passed the House of Representatives.
Ryan's tightrope walk continued after Trump entered the White House.
"I basically explained to him my whole family dynamic".
"It's not a total shocker that Paul Ryan is choosing not to run for reelection, or that he saw his days in Washington as being limited", says Casey.
"I have given this job everything I have", he said.
But the career decision Ryan announced Wednesday morning amounts to a forecast of political weather for 2018 and beyond.
"I'm not going to run for president, that's not my plan, I'm not going to do that", Ryan told CNN.
