Donald Trump and Paul Ryan on Thursday released a statement meant to signal their unity on Thursday following a two-hour meeting on Capitol Hill.
The statement from the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and House Speaker said the two had a “great conversation” and that they were honest over their “few differences” during two hours of meetings on Thursday.
“We will be having additional discussions, but remain confident there’s a great opportunity to unify our party and win this fall, and we are totally committed to working together to achieve that goal,” the joint statement said.
It fell short of an endorsement of Trump by Ryan, but the Speaker in a press conference after the meeting said he was “very encouraged” by what he had heard from Trump, who described as a warm and generous person.
Ryan said it would be the first of a number of meetings, and that the two would get further into the “pollicy weeds” in the future.
