Variety: Paul Ryan Endorses Trump

Ted Johnson
House Speaker Paul Ryan said that he will vote for Donald Trump, after weeks of withholding support for the presumptive Republican nominee.
Ryan did not say whether his vote was an endorsement, but wrote that it is Trump, not Hillary Clinton, who could help advance the House agenda.
In a column he wrote for his hometown newspaper on Wisconsin, The Gazette, Ryan wrote, “Donald Trump and I have talked at great length about things such as the proper role of the executive and fundamental principles such as the protection of life. The list of potential Supreme Court nominees he released after our first meeting was very encouraging.”
He added, “But the House policy agenda has been the main focus of our dialogue. We’ve talked about the common ground this agenda can represent. We’ve discussed how the House can be a driver of policy ideas. We’ve talked about how important these reforms are to saving our country. And we’ve talked about how, by focusing on issues that unite Republicans, we can work together to heal the fissures developed through the primary.

“Through these conversations, I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people’s lives. That’s why I’ll be voting for him this fall.”
