Representanthusets ledare Paul Ryan (R, Wisconsin) kommer inte längre försvara eller kampanja för Trump.
House Speaker Paul Ryan told an emergency meeting of fellow Republican lawmakers that he would neither defend Trump or campaign with him in the coming 30 days, the time remaining to the Nov. 8 presidential and congressional elections, but would focus on protecting Republican majorities in Congress.
Trump har svarat på denna nyhet med ett upprört tweet.
Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee
