Speaker Paul Ryan tells GOP lawmakers he won't defend Donald Trump

Speaker Paul Ryan tells GOP lawmakers he won't defend Donald Trump

Top leaders of the Republican Party have roundly condemned the offensive words used by the NY businessman at the same time that many conservative lawmakers and key GOP figures have called for Trump to withdraw from the race and/or have withdrawn their support for him. Republicans are becoming increasingly anxious about retaining their 30-seat House majority as Trump lags behind Hillary Clinton in the polls in the wake of a variety of controversies.

"It's been an interesting few days", Pence said.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign is facing an unprecedented meltdown as donors reportedly want their money back in the wake of the 2005 controversial video featuring him engaging in a lewd conversation about women.

The Democratic National Committee said Republican lawmakers stood by Mr. Trump when he mocked a disabled reporter, accused a federal judge of bias because of his Mexican heritage and verbally attacked a Muslim family whose son, an Army captain, died while serving in Iraq.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who feuded bitterly with Trump during the GOP primaries but endorsed him in May, condemned Trump's comments but said nothing about his endorsement.

Mr Trump's wife Melania urged voters to support him despite saying his remarks were "unacceptable and offensive to me".

Pence also hit back on the Hillary Clinton's latest hacked emails, quoting her comments to Wall Street investors in which she talks about having a "public and private position" in order to be politically successful.

The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at the SEC website . In a research note issued on September 02, 2016, analysts at Raymond James downgraded the stock to Mkt Perform from Outperform.

As of Sunday, 16 Republican senators had called for Mr. Trump to drop out of the race, as had some two dozen members of the House. Several people on the call said Ryan explicitly told House members, "You all need to do what's best for you in your district".

In that way, Pence was answering any doubts he would remain with Trump, after a 48-hour stretch in which scores of Republican candidates and leaders abandoned the presidential nominee over the 2005 remarks. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, John McCain of Arizona, and Rob Portman of Ohio. Said Deputy Campaign Manager Dave Bossie: "Corey made this decision when he staged a stunt in front of the RNC without the knowledge or the approval of the Trump campaign".

Appearing on "The Laura Ingraham Show" on Friday, Ryan said he was excited about the prospect appearing with Trump at an event that weekend.

Donald Trump's chief spokesman says "nothing's changed".

"Katie McGinty has yet to say a single word against Hillary Clinton's disastrous policies that have endangered our country, her widespread dishonesty, or the corruption of her behavior with the Clinton Foundation", Toomey said.

"It takes a big man to know when he's wrong and to admit it and to have the humility to apologize and be transparent and be vulnerable with people", Pence told the crowd.

"The speaker is going to spend the next month focused entirely on protecting our congressional majorities", said Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong. And Trump still has his supporters within Ryan's caucus. "Watch their poll numbers - and elections - go down", he said in a Twitter post Sunday morning.
