It is no secret that Donald Trump and Paul Ryan aren’t BFFs.
Ryan has so far refused to endorse Trump, even after they sat down for a one on one recently in DC.
This has caused Team Trump and endless amount of heartburn.
But now it looks like the shrinking #NeverTrump bandwagon has lost another member.
Since Trump ousted his last rival and clinched the GOP nomination, scores of leading conservative voices came out in support. But a few holdouts remained, mostly those established politicians in Washington.
But as we get closer to the Republican National Convention, it seems the tide is turning.
In a column, House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about his interactions with Trump:
“Donald Trump and I have talked at great length about things such as the proper role of the executive and fundamental principles such as the protection of life. The list of potential Supreme Court nominees he released after our first meeting was very encouraging.”
“Through these conversations, I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people’s lives. That’s why I’ll be voting for him this fall.”
This clear endorsement should silence the few detractors that are left. If the Speaker of the House, a key Washington Republican, is supporter Donald Trump, who can continue to protest?
But don’t be surprised if there remain a few outlying conservative critics of Trump. So long as there’s ink to be written, and web pages to fill, there will be people attacking the nominee.
As we get closer to election time, though, the fewer critics we will see.
