Ryan Had To Personally School Trump On FISA After Botched Tweet

"Thought about my own family", adds "my family came from Ireland and worked the railroads, the Irish were really looked down upon back in those days".

Janesville's Speaker of the House of Representatives has criticized the comments reportedly made by President Donald Trump about Haiti and African nations during a meeting on immigration Thursday.

President Trump admitted that he used "tough language during his immigration reform meeting, however, he argued that the comments were not accurate". "I think it's important we celebrate that".

The government faces a January 19 deadline to provide the money to continue funding the federal government. He said he's confident they will reach a long-term spending agreement at some point, even if he can't say when.

Ryan reiterated he is dedicated to finding a legislative solution to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - the Obama-era initiative that extended temporary legal status to foreign nationals who illegally entered the country as minors - in coming weeks. "I think we'll get a down payment on some of these problems and keep fighting, keep working to get the rest of it done". As a result, Ryan said he doubts there will be a government shutdown.

Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, echoed that sentiment, saying he wants a "bipartisan consensus" on entitlement reform.

While other Republicans have condemned the president's remarks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has not yet issued a response.

When the moderator pressed Ryan on how lawmakers could find a deal when Trump was making those sorts of comments, Ryan said, "We just have to get it done". "But you know what I thought of right away?"
