Speaker of the House Paul D. Ryan has proven a feckless leader.
On Monday, Mr. Ryan told House members he would no longer defend GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and instead would focus on maintaining the party’s majority in Congress. He also said he wouldn’t rescind his endorsement of Mr. Trump.
The #NeverTrump crowd gained nothing in principles. The Trump supporters gained nothing in terms of party unification. And the House majority likely will be at play because Mr. Ryan couldn’t make up his mind how it should be led 29 days going into the general election.
