Paul Ryan reaffirms support for Trump, critiques campaign

Roland Mccarthy | 05 August, 2016, 00:14

"Our volunteers and contributors are clearly committed to electing Donald J. Trump as President in November", the Trump campaign's finance chairman, Steven Mnuchin, said in a statement.

Pence added that he and Trump "have different styles", which shouldn't be "confused with differences in conviction".

But he also admitted frustration with Trump's campaign since the conclusion of the RNC. "The election is about Hillary Clinton".

McCain's response was a lengthy denunciation in which he said the GOP nomination does not confer on Trump "unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us".

Another Republican congressman is saying he's unlikely to support Donald Trump for president. I want to thank everyone for your tremendous support.

Trump, meanwhile, insisted Wednesday that all was well with the GOP.

"I like everything about him", Marilyn Barlass, a 73-year-old Ryan supporter from his hometown of Janesville, said Wednesday.

Trump has faced a political firestorm in recent days.

Yes, Pence was confronted by an angry military mom who wanted to know why, as the father of a U.S. Marine, he could "tolerate" the recent comments from Donald Trump directed toward the Gold Star family of a Muslim American Army officer.

Ahead of last month's Republican Party Convention, the RNC chairman sought to rally the fractured party behind Trump.

"Well, the thing is, you nitpicked what he says, and the other day he was talking about, strong message, on what's going on with this $400 million in Iran, which is an outrageous amount of money", Manafort said.

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

Trump and his vice presidential nominee Mike Pence are scheduled to appear in Green Bay for a town hall event Friday evening.

"It's not just in Paul Ryan's district", Manafort said.

"I strongly support Paul Ryan, strongly endorse his re-election", Pence said. "And I'm pleased to do it".

On several occasions in the past week, the in governor has found himself in direct conflict with Trump, taking a different campaign tact or running damage control after one of the Republican presidential nominee's incendiary remarks. Ted Cruz trounced Trump by 19 points in Wisconsin's April presidential primary.

"He's incapable of changing. But here's the news, I am told senior officials at the party are actively exploring what would happen if Trump dropped out, how to replace him on the ballot", Karl said on Wednesday.

He was deeply upset when GOP leaders "took the other side" during his quarrel with the Khans, one person said, and blames his staff for not keeping top Republicans in line.

Trump, who secured the Republican presidential nomination during his party's convention two weeks ago, remained defiant Tuesday.

Yet a substantial majority of the $64 million raised through digital and mail programs will head to the campaign, while fairly little of the cash directed to Trump Victory - which can accept larger checks - will funnel to the campaign.

"The first order of business is winning", said Geoff Garin, a strategist for Mrs. Clinton's 2008 campaign who now advises Priorities USA Action, a pro-Clinton "super PAC".

"The campaign's focused and the campaign is moving forward in a positive way", Manafort told Fox.
