Ryan Says He Won’t Defend Trump Any Longer
“Speaker Paul Ryan told House Republicans on a conference call Monday morning he is done defending Donald Trump and will focus on keeping an increasingly imperiled House majority, according to sources on the call,” Politico reports.
Said Ryan: “You all need to do what’s best for you in your district.”
Washington Post: “The speaker, who has pledged to vote for Trump, did not address whether he would revoke his official endorsement, said a second source present on the call. The tone of that call, which lasted roughly an hour, added that source, was ‘nervous.'”
