Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic political analyst Donna Brazile said Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) had “spoken out against the kind of bigotry” coming from the likely presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Brazile said, “The day after Donald Trump became the presumptive republican nominee, he doubled down on banning Muslims, doubled down on building the wall. Paul Ryan has been at least one of the Republicans who have spoken out against the kind of bigotry of Donald Trump. And, I think for Paul Ryan to just basically rubber-stamp Donald Trump without questioning the substance of some of the things he’s said and the tone — Paul Ryan has been talking about changing the tone. Yes, Alex, he’s apologized for, you know, attacking poor people in the past. I don’t know if that’s a quote unquote the policies of the future. But at least Paul Ryan understands that Donald Trump has to change his tone before he embraces him.”
