Manafort on Trump: ‘He’s going to support Paul Ryan’

by Eliza Collins, USA TODAY  |  published on August 4, 2016

Donald Trump’s campaign manager said “there’s conflict within the Trump campaign” over the Republican nominee not endorsing the House speaker, but that Trump will eventually support Paul Ryan in the election because his opponent won’t win the primary.

“Of course he’s gonna work with Paul Ryan, of course he’s trying to bridge the party with Paul Ryan,” Manafort said on ABC’s Good Morning America Thursday. “But Paul Ryan is running against someone who’s not going to win but nonetheless he is a strong supporter of Mr. Trump.”

On Tuesday, Trump told The Washington Post he was “just not quite there yet” on endorsing Ryan. He also said he has “never been there” with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and criticized Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H. Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has enthusiastically endorsed Ryan.

Trump and Ryan’s opponent, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, have exchanged praise of each other.

Also Thursday on CBS This Morning, Manafort echoed that Trump would work with the House speaker, saying “there’s no issue about that.”

    If Paul Ryan is reelected then the people of Wisconsin are a bunch of moronic a$$holes. Ryan is 100% open borders, more foreign workers to displace American workers & flooding our country with muslim “refugees”/terrorists. He & his butt buddy John, Boner, Boehner funded everything Obama wanted, from Obamacare to his ILLEGAL amnesties. If Trump supports a man who has done everything in his power to undermine Trump’s presidential bid then he is an idiot.

    Trump says his campaign is more united than it’s ever been. His campaign manager says there’s conflict within the campaign. Well, which is it? This is somehow Hillary’s fault. Isn’t it? Everything is Hillary’s fault, even before she was Secretary of State

      Before Hillary, it was Bill Clintons fault. He allowed those people of 9/11 stay in the country. He let them all in, and there was no accounting. Dont forget they are a team husband and wife, working to build their $350 Billion fund. So it is The Clinton agenda all the time.
      She left her ambassador to die in Bengahzi. That is BIG

      • I Seigel

        Yeah, Bush had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. It was all Clinton’s fault. (Even though Clinton had been out of office for 9 months when 9/11 happened.) (And the Clinton Global Initiative didn’t start til later.) (And just ignore the conspiracy theories that Bush & Company knew beforehand about the attack.)

      • I Seigel

        The part I don’t get is the part where Clinton is indicted, tried and convicted. By a jury. Not by Breitbart, Drudge and Fox and Rush. And, of course, not by a jury that contains numbnuts like you. Show me a convicted criminal, and I’ll agree that he or she doesn’t belong in public office. Like Dennis Hastert.

        • Grandpa

          just vote for her the only numnut I see is troll like you that don’t get it she kill any and everyone that come out against her trump 16 all the way to the Whitehouse Obama and hillabeast the a jail cell get it troll

          • I Seigel

            That’s sure a lot of killing. No indictments, no charges, no arrests, no convictions? Huh! What’s up with that? Kenneth Starr, Trey Gowdy, etc etc – nothing??!!?? Why do you think that is?

          • Ramon1710 .

            Corrupt court system and justice Dept, dumbass. Same reason all challenges regarding the Kenyan’s fake BC were tossed out for “lack of standing”. But in your defense, not very many bright ones out there in NY.

          • I Seigel

            OF COURSE!! How could I have not known!!?? Anything that disagrees with your ideology is a conspiracy, corruption If Trump wins, GREAT! The system works. If Trump loses – system rigged, election stolen. Why are the Dems not screaming the same thing? The whining always seems to come from the right. WHY??

    Ryan is no better than Bonehead was and he continues to send us down the tubes he needs outing. All the RINO need out and that includes McCain and by the way my father was a POW after the Death March for the remainder of the war and he won the Purple Heart and he didn’t consider himself some sort of hero for living through it. My mother and grandfather interred along with 5,000 people in Manila for 3.5 years and they didn’t consider themselves heroes so all this fuss about Trump and McCain is hooey.

    It isn’t a sin to not think someone is not a hero. Bottom line. Stupid stuff. As to that Khan he is a lawyer who takes care of refugees and a Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia Law supporter and by the way what was he talking about anyway? The ban on refugees is a good thing it was Radical Islam taht killed his son. Where is the thinking outside the box people? Where is it?

      You nailed it…one of the few.

        We have to get this one right. I work with my two congressmen now and again. Two of the greatest guys around. The one is calling it quits. He can’t take it anymore. Congress is abused by media and O same as Trump is and seems we only have 28 Congressmen who are not RINO.
