Ryan says he can’t support Trump, at this time.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Ryan said he wants Trump to unify “all wings of the Republican Party and the conservative movement” and then run a campaign that will allow Americans to “have something that they’re proud to support and proud to be a part of.”
“And we’ve got a ways to go from here to there,” Ryan said.

Donald J. Trump Responds to Speaker Paul Ryan
“I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!”
Donald J. Trump
Friday, Trump told Fox:
“I was very, very surprised. He talks about unity, but what is this about unity? With millions of people coming into the party obviously I’m saying the right thing,”
“So many great endorsements yesterday, except for Paul Ryan! We must put America first and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump said.
So let me understand, Ryan demands Trump unify “all wings” of the Republican Party? What elite arrogance. One of the guys responsible for the ongoing Party failures, causing conservatives’ grievances, blames Trump and then expects him to fix it.
This from the guy who was plastering self-promoting videos of himself on social media. What is going on with Ryan and what’s his problem?
Then comes news of a meeting between Trump and members of Congress for next Thursday. Once again, Ryan injects himself in the news cycle. Meanwhile, with all the grief people have over Ryan’s performance, he is pointing at Trump. I’m glad, with all the problems, Ryan finds a convenient scapegoat and whipping post in Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, Dick Cheney takes a stand for unity.
