Speaker Paul Ryan “Encouraged” After Trump Meeting

HeadlineMay 16, 2016

House Speaker Paul Ryan has continued to offer guarded praise for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Ryan praised a meeting on Thursday between Trump and Republican leaders, but said more work remains to unify the Republican Party.

House Speaker Paul Ryan: “It is no secret that Donald Trump and I have had some disagreements. It’s no secret that we’ve, from time to time, clashed on an issue or two. That happens with people. That happens with Republicans. The question is: Can we put together a process that really actually helps get our party unified, so that we’re at full strength in the fall? And based upon the meetings that we had on Thursday, I’m encouraged with the beginning of this process.”
