Speaker of the House Paul Ryan says he’ll meet with Donald Trump next week at the Republican National Committee office in Washington, D.C.

Ryan released the following statement on Friday:

Having both said we need to unify the party, Speaker Ryan has invited Donald Trump to meet with members of the House Republican leadership in Washington on Thursday morning to begin a discussion about the kind of Republican principles and ideas that can win the support of the American people this November. The Speaker and Mr. Trump will also meet separately, along with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

The meeting comes after Ryan made headlines by saying he isn’t ready to support Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. Ryan made the comment during an interview on CNN on Thursday.
