Ryan added: “It’s absolutely unacceptable.”
Ryan did add, however, that Trump’s latest comments aren’t enough for him to stop supporting the candidate.
“Do I believe that Hillary Clinton is gonna be the answer to solving these problems, I do not. I believe that we have more common ground on the policy issue of the day and we have more likelihood of getting our policies enacted with him then we do with her,” Ryan said.
