DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – House Speaker Paul Ryan is reaffirming his support for Donald Trump in his first comments since the Republican nominee declined to endorse the speaker in his upcoming GOP primary.
Ryan brushed off Trump’s stance, telling a radio interviewer in Green Bay, Wis., that the only endorsement he cares about is from voters in his congressional district.
But he also says that Trump “has had a pretty strange run since the convention. You would think we should be focusing on Hillary Clinton and all of her deficiencies.”
Ryan says it’s “distressing” that that’s not what the conversation is about.
Ryan made his comments on the “Jerry Bader Show” on WTAQ radio in Wisconsin.
