RNC Chief to Broker Meeting Between Trump and Paul Ryan Next Week

Yesterday House Speaker Paul Ryan told CNN's Jake Tapper he isn't ready to support Donald Trump's candidacy for President, but that things could change down the road.

"I'm not there right now and I hope to be there and I want to," Ryan said. "The bulk of the burden of unifying the Party will have to come from our presumptive nominee."

Trump fired back by saying he isn't ready to support Paul Ryan. 

"I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan's agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people," Trump said in a statement. "They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!"

Now, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is stepping in and will host a meeting between the two in Washington D.C next week.

The meeting will likely take place Wednesday at the Republican National Committee on Capitol Hill.
