Paul Ryan: Not Backing Trump Yet

Updated on

Donald Trump and Paul Ryan spoke by telephone on Wednesday night, as the pair of Republican leaders try to break a weeks-long impasse over an endorsement.

Two members of Trump’s team told Bloomberg that they believe a formal endorsement from Ryan, the U.S. House speaker, is imminent. A Trump aide with knowledge of the call said the conversation was arranged days ago with the goal of resolving the current rift between the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and Ryan.
