Paul Ryan Really Not Endorsing Trump For Now

House Speaker Paul Ryan has no plans to endorse the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

At least not yet.

“I have not made a decision, and nothing has changed,” Ryan told reporters Wednesday during a pen and pad according to the Huffington Post.

Reports surfaced Wednesday morning that senior Trump campaign officials were confident the endorsement was coming, but Ryan’s office quickly squashed those reports.

“There’s no update and we’ve not told the Trump campaign to expect an endorsement,” Ryan’s spokesman said in a statement. “He’s also not told anyone he regrets anything.”

Even as many Republicans have come around to endorse Trump, Ryan has held off. Ryan and Trump met earlier this month to discuss the campaign and some of their policy positions. Ryan described the meeting as courteous and productive, but still has not offered a formal endorsement.
