Paul Ryan: Would Step Down from Convention Chair if Donald Trump Wants

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan says he would step down as co-chair at the Republican National Convention if Donald Trump wanted him to.

Ryan and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus are set to oversee the convention where the party officially nominates its candidate.

“He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention,” Ryan reportedly told a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter.

Ryan said he hasn’t ruled out eventually supporting Trump, but that he needs to “get to know the guy.” He also said if conservatives in the Republican Party attempted a third-party candidate, it “would be a disaster for our party.”

Ryan’s comments come after he said, last week, he wasn’t yet ready to support Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee.
