Trump Punches Back: I’m Not Ready to Support Ryan’s Agenda

Donald Trump is already breaking off from the Republican agenda and made it clear on Thursday that he wasn’t ready to back House Speaker Paul Ryan’s agenda.

“I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda,” Trump said in a statement Thursday.

“Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!”

The Hill reports:

Earlier Thursday, the Wisconsin Republican told CNN he’s “not ready” to back his party’s presumptive nominee.

“I hope to, though, and I want to,” he said. “But what is required is to unify this party. And the bulk of the burden on unifying the party will have to come from our presumptive nominee.”

Trump’s ascendancy has created rifts in the GOP, with many Republicans refusing to back the business mogul.
