Speaker Paul Ryan told House Republicans on a conference call Monday morning he is done defending Donald Trump and will focus on keeping an increasingly imperiled House majority, according to sources on the call.
Ryan added that if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, a Republican Congress is needed to be a check on her. (What a joke as they'll cave just as they have for the last 8 years.)
The speaker, however, did not formally revoke his endorsement of Trump.
Ryan told members, “You all need to do what’s best for you in your district,” said a source on the call, giving his members the political cover to disavow Trump if they feel they need to do so.
