Ryan told Bret Baier said he certainly disagrees with that statement. He talked about the greatness of the American melting pot and how “the condition of your birth doesn’t determine the outcome of your life” in this country.
“I don’t think,” Ryan added, “that statement reflects what is special about this country. I’d like to think––and I haven’t spoken to Steve about this––I’d like to think that he misspoke and it wasn’t really meant the way that that sounds, and hopefully he’s clarified that.”
On CNN this morning, King said, “I meant exactly what I said.”
