U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) listens to a question during his weekly news confReuters

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday he is not ready to support or endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.


"I'm just not ready to do that at this point. I'm not there right now," Ryan, a Republican, said in an interview with CNN.


Ryan, who added he hoped to support Trump's candidacy, was making his first public comments since Trump's Republican primary rivals dropped out of the race for the White House this week.
