Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway is tired of the “pussyfooting around” from Republican lawmakers who have distanced themselves from the Republican presidential ticket in recent days, calling on them to decide once and for all whether or not they support their party’s nominee.
“Well we want the support of anybody who’s going to publicly endorse us.

Among the Republicans Conway labeled as “pussyfooting” is House Speaker Paul Ryan, who on Monday told Republican members of Congress that he would no longer defend Trump nor would he campaign with him ahead of November’s presidential election. The Wisconsin Republican also told GOP lawmakers that “you all need to do what’s best for you in your district” when it comes to deciding whether or not to support Trump.
