Paul Ryan‘s axed his usual Q&A session with reporters today in order to host Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi before he appears before Congress.

Even though Ryan said yesterday that Donald Trump‘s attacks on a Trump-University judge’s ethnicity were the “textbook definition of racism” he never exactly threatened to withdraw support for the presumptive GOP nominee. In fact, a lot of Trump critics have taken him and other party leaders to task for continually complaining about Trump’s antics, but never actually forcing him to evolve in behavior, issue a public apology, or face any real consequences for his controversies.
