Paul Ryan said Monday that if the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump, wants him to step down as a co-chairman of the GOP convention, he will respect his wishes.
“He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention,” Ryan said when asked about that scenario in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Ryan said he hopes he and Trump can begin to get to know each other when they meet on Thursday.
“I just want to get to know the guy … we just don’t know each other,” said Ryan, who also tossed a dart at Sarah Palin. The former governor of Alaska told CNN that Ryan was not supporting Trump because of his desire to run for president in 2020. Ryan said Palin’s remarks are inaccurate. He claims he has no interest in running for president in 2020.
