Donald Trump has staked his presidential campaign on his opposition to the amnesty policies, global trade deals and foreign wars supported by the Republican establishment.
Typically after a primary campaign, the competing factions usually come together in a show of unity in the general election.
However, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan left conservatives questioning his motives with an interview he gave to CNN.
Just two days after Trump’s smashing victory in Indiana, which ended the GOP race and left RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to tweet that Trump was the presumptive nominee, Ryan announced he could not yet endorse his party’s nominee for president.
“Well, to be perfectly candid with you, I’m just not ready to do that at this point,” Ryan told CNN’s Jake Tapper about extending his support to Trump. “I’m not there right now. And I hope to, though, and I want to.”
