House GOP has muddled reaction to Trump


Paul Ryan has been showing enthusiasm about Republican Party Nominee, Donald Trump. His remarks show great excitement for Trump’s potential arrival to the Oval Office.

From a report by the Associated Press and the Racine Journal Times:

Trump’s message to a packed room at the Republican National Committee building was, “We all need to stick together. Things will all work out in November,” according to Rep. Ken Calvert of California.

Trump supporters who were present said they welcomed the reassurance. For others, it wasn’t enough, as lawmakers who have been wary of Trump’s candidacy said they remain skeptical.

“I said before the meeting that Donald Trump has a lot of work to persuade many Americans, including myself, that he is able to lead this great country,” said Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa. “I still need to be persuaded.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan, who represents Racine County, said in a statement that Republicans “had a great meeting” and the party is committed to beating presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“Our members were grateful to hear about his general election plans and his desire to unify the party in advance of a critical election this November,” Ryan, R-Wis., said in a statement. “It was an important opportunity for our members to get additional information about Mr. Trump’s campaign and ask questions about the issues that matter to Americans.”‘
