The White House started using Ryan’s words in their own attacks on Donald Trump later that afternoon.
On Sunday Ryan will go on CBS to continue his attacks on Donald Trump.
He might as well cut an ad for Hillary Clinton.
Paul Ryan will double-down on his attacks on GOP nominee Donald Trump on Sunday morning on Face the Nation.
The interview was already recorded.
CBS News reported:
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, has strongly disavowed comments made by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump less than a week after endorsing him. In a Face the Nation interview set to air this upcoming Sunday, host John Dickerson asked the Speaker how his endorsement is “sitting,” after Donald Trump’s allegation that a judge presiding over a lawsuit involving Trump University is biased due to the his Mexican heritage. Ryan responded with a laugh saying, “It could be better.”
“I do think that those comments are racist comments” Ryan said. “That’s why I’ve disavowed them completely. What bothers me about the comments is it doesn’t reflect who we are or what we think or how we think as Republicans.”
Speaker Ryan added that “the notion that someone’s ethnicity or race effects the way they do their job is completely the opposite of what we believe.” Ryan said.
“I don’t think that those are appropriate comments by any stretch of the mind” the Speaker stated and added, “Hopefully a lesson will be learned here and we can move forward with a better campaign.”
** Only 22% of Republicans believe Donald Trump’s comments on La Raza Judge Curiel were racist.
But before he goes on the Sunday talk shows Paul Ryan will be meeting with Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Tom Cotton and GOP Chair Reince Priebus.
Mitt Romney has his retreat in Utah tomorrow. Attendees include Paul Ryan, Reince Priebus, Ben Sasse, Tom Cotton. https://t.co/wTfeo6u0S1
