House Speaker Paul Ryan Endorses Donald Trump

HeadlineJun 03, 2016

House Speaker Paul Ryan has endorsed Donald Trump. Ryan, the top elected Republican in the country, had previously criticized Trump, saying his proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States was “not what this country stands for.” Last month, Ryan told CNN he was “just not ready” to endorse Trump. But on Thursday Ryan said he had changed his mind. In a column submitted to his hometown paper, the Janesville Gazette, Ryan wrote: “It’s no secret that [Trump] and I have our differences. I won’t pretend otherwise. And when I feel the need to, I’ll continue to speak my mind. But the reality is, on the issues that make up our agenda, we have more common ground than disagreement.”
