Ryan Says Trump Is ‘Far Better’ Than Clinton

Whoever the Republicans nominate for president next year will be preferable to Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic candidate, new House Speaker Paul Ryan said Sunday.

He pledged to support the GOP ticket, even if Donald Trump is the nominee, according to The Hill. The news site pointed out that Ryan has frequently spoken out against the real-estate mogul. Earlier this year, he declared that Trump does not represent the views of most Republicans when he blasts immigrants.

During an appearance Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” show, the Wisconsin lawmaker said he continues to disagree with Trump on certain issues. However, he stressed that the billionaire “would be a far better president than Hillary Clinton.”

“Look, I think we’re having a good primary process. It’s cathartic. It’s helpful,” Ryan said. “We have excellent people running for president. What I think really matters is not the personality, but the policy.”

Ryan appeared on all five major Sunday morning news shows, following his first week as House speaker. He succeeded Ohio Rep. John Boehner, who gave up the powerful post and resigned from Congress at the end of October.

According to two recent national polls, Trump is trailing Ben Carson in the battle for the nomination.
