House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he is “not ready” to support presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and says it’s up to Mr. Trump to unify the party. The speaker and former 2012 vice presidential nominee made the remarks while appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper Thursday.
“I hope to [support him]” and “want to,” Speaker Ryan said.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus, a close friend of the speaker and fellow-Wisconsinite, confirmed he had spoken with both Mr. Ryan and Mr. Trump later Thursday afternoon and brokered a meeting between them. While no further details were released, the meeting is allegedly going to take place sometime next week. Following his overwhelming win in Indiana on Tuesday, Chairman Priebus tweeted out that Mr. Trump was “going to be the presumptive @GOP nominee” and urged the party to unify behind #NeverHillary.
