Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump countered House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Thursday, saying said he couldn’t get behind Ryan’s agenda.

Ryan said earlier in the day that he was “just not ready” to support Trump, but that he “hoped” and “wanted” to.

“I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda,” Trump shot back in a statement. “Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!”
