Ryan Says He Already Voted for Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan said this week on Fox News that he voted for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during early voting in what was one of the few — if not the only — times the Wisconsin Republican has said Trump’s name since announcing three weeks ago that he wouldn’t defend or campaign with the presidential nominee. Ryan had never revoked his endorsement of Trump but he distanced himself from the nominee after a 2005 video emerged of Trump joking about sexually assaulting women. Since then, Ryan has largely avoided the national media so he would not have to talk about the billionaire businessman.
