Paul Ryan Calls Trump 'Shithole' Comments 'Very Unfortunate, Unhelpful'

Ryan called Trump to explain surveillance issue after critical tweet report

Just days after Ryan, McConnell and other congressional leaders met with Trump at Camp David to discuss the legislative year, Ryan said Friday that entitlement reform was no longer on his list, saying there wouldn't be enough bipartisan support for the idea.

Ryan's comments follow remarks from President Donald Trump, who told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday that he believes Congress will move to an infrastructure plan before going on to welfare reform.

Mr. Trump issued a denial Friday about using that language in a Thursday Oval Office meeting where he reportedly described Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "sh*thole countries". He was referring to Trump's asking, during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, why the US should admit more immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa.

"First thing that came to my mind was, very unfortunate, unhelpful", Ryan said.

"I thought about my own family", he said, describing his Irish immigrant relatives who came to the US on what he said were called "coffin ships" and began working the railroads.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call the MSP Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. Manchester police are looking for the man who robbed a local convenience store at gunpoint Tuesday night.

Trump allegedly said, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" "I thought about my own family".

"It's a attractive story of America", he said. I see this as a thing to celebrate.

Ryan said he didn't think there would be a government shutdown, adding that Republicans and Democrats are making progress on spending caps.

The Post based their report on unnamed sources said to have been briefed on the meeting.

Trump sowed confusion over the bill by sending a tweet that resurrected his prior claims that his campaign team had been spied upon.
