The National Republican Senatorial Committee released this ad throwing everything at Hillary Clinton. “Hillary Clinton is the living embodiment of everything Americans hate about politics” the ad says. “Democratic Senate candidates: She is your burden to bear.”
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday, Ryan said it is possible for the party to be unified but not at the current moment. He was asked the question every Republican is being asked right now, can he support Donald Trump.
“Well, to be perfectly candid with you, I’m not ready to do that yet at this point,” Ryan said. “I am not there right now. I hope to though. And I want to. What’s required is that we unify the party. And I think the bulk of the burden of unifying the party will have to come from our presumptive nominee. I do not want to underplay what he accomplished. He needs to be congratulated for an enormous accomplishment for winning now a plurality of delegates and now he’s on his way to winning the majority of delegates.” “So you’re saying that you can’t support or endorse him right now?” Tapper asked. “I am basically saying that,” Ryan answered.
“I’ve seen the presidency up close from two different perspectives and I think I know what it takes,” Clinton said. “And I don’t think we can take a risk on a loose cannon like Donald Trump running our country.” “I do think he is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire,” she said. Clinton dared Trump to use the playbook of the 1990s against her and see what happens. “If he wants to go back to the playbook of the 1990s, if he wants to follow in the footsteps of those who have tried to knock me down and take me out of the political arena, I’m more than happy to have him do that,” Clinton said.
