The Blaze -- House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to endorse presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, “senior-level Trump campaign sources” told ABC News.
A Ryan spokesperson, however, told The Blaze, “There’s no update and we’ve not told the Trump campaign to expect an endorsement.”
“He’s also not told anyone he regrets anything,” the spokesperson added.
It’s unclear if or when Ryan plans to announce his endorsement of Trump. Bloomberg has more on the potential endorsement:
Ryan aides say nothing has been decided about a possible Trump endorsement. But Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, told a small group of Republican lawmakers Thursday that he expects Ryan to endorse the party’s nominee as early as this week, according to two people in the meeting.The House speaker created some GOP controversy when he told CNN earlier this month that he simply wasn’t ready to support the presumptive nominee.
If Ryan were to endorse Trump, the move would end a nearly unprecedented standoff between the House speaker and his party’s presumptive presidential nominee, and remove the biggest remaining obstacle to Trump’s efforts to unite Republicans around his campaign.
Trump and Ryan ultimately met in Washington D.C. to discuss their differences. Though both men said the meeting was productive, Ryan still wasn’t prepared to support Trump’s candidacy after the sit-down.
Blog Author's Comments -- I don't see any advantage for Trump kneeling to Ryan. It's time for folks to start proving to Trump that they belong on his bandwagon. Ryan will be challenged in the primary and I am hoping he loses his seat, though doubtful, in the House. This is the guy who was made to look like a total fool during his VP debate in 2012 with now Vice President Joe Biden. Perhaps it is a good thing that Romney and Ryan did not win. We have now seen who they really are.
Donald Trump does not need Ryan, may he follow in Cantor's footsteps. I don't see that an endorsement from Ryan would help him. Ryan is just proving that he is a total ass and yet again, that the so-called leaders of the GOP are worthless. Both Ryan and McConnell are afraid that Trump will win the presidency. Things will definitely change within the Party when Donald Trump moves from 'Trump Tower' to the White House.
Will Endorse Trump Were Just Rumors
