Citing ‘Common Ground’ Speaker Paul Ryan Endorses Donald Trump for President

MADISON, Wis. — House Speaker Paul Ryan today announced in a newspaper column that he will vote for Donald Trump, an act a Ryan spokesperson subsequently indicated was an endorsement.

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:

“Donald Trump is a racist, misogynistic narcissist who has won the Republican presidential nomination by appealing to the most repugnant elements in American politics.

“The next time Paul Ryan is held out as the intellectual heart of the Republican Party remember he is voting to give Donald Trump the codes to our nation’s nuclear arsenal.”
