Speaker Ryan to GOP: Won't defend Trump now or in future

FILE: House Speaker Paul Ryan (Andrew Harnik)

House Speaker Paul Ryan is all but conceding Hillary Clinton will be the next president.

In a conference call Monday morning with House Republicans Ryan tells them that he will not defend Donald Trump or campaign with him for the next 30 days.

Instead he says he will spend "his entire energy making sure that Hillary Clinton does not get a blank check with a Democrat-controlled Congress."

That's according to a person on the call who demanded anonymity to describe the private conversation.
