Paul Ryan on Phone Call with Trump: It Was ‘Productive’

paul ryanPaul Ryan spoke with Donald Trump over the phone last night after a public misunderstanding of sorts over Ryan endorsing his party’s candidate.

Remember, even after that big unity meeting, Ryan said he’s not ready to endorse yet. Trump people told news outlets this week Ryan’s getting ready to endorse him. Ryan said yesterday he’s still not ready.

So he and Trump had a call last night, and naturally he was asked about it during a presser this morning.

He said, “It was a productive phone call… We had a very good and very productive phone call.”

When asked if it got him “closer to yes” on Trump, Ryan responded, “We had a very productive phone call.”

Ryan said a few minutes later he’s interested in actual party unity, not “pretend party unity.”
