Ryan: Trump's Remarks About Africa 'Unhelpful'

Ryan: Trump's Remarks About Africa 'Unhelpful'

House Speaker said Friday that he does not think the chamber will pass entitlement reform - one of his major goals - this year.

The Wisconsin Republican added that he does not believe the government will shut down over the continued negotiations regarding spending and DACA. Republicans, who hold 51 seats, would need to win nine Democratic votes to overcome a likely filibuster in the chamber. "That's because that's just not good government". "I thought about my own family", Ryan said.

Bipartisan negotiations hit a snag after President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected an agreement reached by a group of six senators.

Bipartisan immigration talks stalled on Thursday after Trump threw "gasoline to the fire", in the words of Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), by dismissing immigrants from "shithole countries".

"So, the first thing that came to my mind was very unfortunate, unhelpful". "We just have to get it done", he said.

In a sign of how seriously France is taking the issue, Macron weighed in from Italy, also promising punishment for those responsible.

The moderator of the Wisconsin event asked Speaker Ryan, "Will [DACA] get attached to the spending bill?" And Ryan said he immediately thought about oppression his family had faced.

"Family. My family, like a whole lot of people, came from Ireland and worked the railroads", Ryan said.

"I think it's a big part of our strength, whether you're coming from Haiti - we've got great friends from Africa in Janesville who are doctors who are incredible citizens", Ryan said.
