Paul Ryan Says Trump's 'Sh*thole Countries' Comment Was 'Unfortunate'

Paul Ryan predicts no shutdown says GOP won't'tackle Medicare Social Security

When the moderator pressed Ryan on how lawmakers could find a deal when Trump was making those sorts of comments, Ryan said, "We just have to get it done".

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) lamented President Donald Trump's reported comments on immigration, recalling how it reminded him of his Irish ancestors who faced discrimination when they came to the United States.

When the moderator clarified that he was referring to "a word I can't mention" about African countries, Ryan said he was focused on other issues on Thursday and read those comments later at night.

"It is a attractive story of America".

It's clear that President Trump's remarks regarding "sh*thole countries" are, like his comments made shortly after the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, not going away.


Trump on Friday, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Made up by Dems. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Ryan - who has long advocated for major changes to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security - said they are going to need to work across the aisle on any significant changes to the programs as Republicans don't have a supermajority in Senate. We do not want to fix the symptom and ignore the cause. "I see this as a thing to celebrate and I think it's a big part of our strength".

The moderator of the Wisconsin event asked Speaker Ryan, "Will [DACA] get attached to the spending bill?"

U.S. lawmakers will resort to passing a short-term federal spending deal next week to avoid an embarrassing government shutdown, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday, as prospects for a long-term 2018 agreement dimmed.

Ryan said Congress will eventually have to address making changes to the social safety net, arguing the current structure is fiscally unsustainable.
