Ryan, Walker react to Trump victory
Ryan: Trump must bring country together
MADISON, Wis. — House Speaker Paul Ryan called Donald Trump’s win an “incredible victory” but work now must turn to “bringing the country together.”
And Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton is “a win for taxpayers and a win for America.” And he says “our leaders should look to Wisconsin and be willing to make the decisions needed to enact serious reforms.”
Both Ryan and Walker have a complicated relationship with Trump. Walker was critical of Trump before endorsing him. And Ryan pledged in October not to defend or campaign with him. But as the election neared, Ryan became more vocal for Trump.
Ryan said Trump’s win is a “repudiation of the status quo of failed liberal progressive policies.”
