AP

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday night distanced himself from Donald Trump’s comment that Saddam Hussein was “so good” at killing terrorists.

During an interview on Fox News, Megyn Kelly asked Ryan to respond to Trump’s comments about Hussein.

“He was one of the 20th century’s most evil people,” Ryan said in response. “He committed mass genocide against his own people using chemical weapons. Saddam Hussein was a bad guy.”
