Paul Ryan: I Try To 'Lead By Example' to Sway Trump

Mike Pence Pushes Back After Paul Ryan Criticizes Trump's 'Messed Up' Charlottesville Remarks

Ryan, however, exploited the trip to highlight the essence of business and the GOP's tight connection now than ever on taxes irrespective of surfacing rifts.

"Well, I don't think a government shutdown isn't necessary and I don't think most people want to see a government shutdown, ourselves included", he told reporters at a press conference in Hillsboro, Ore., noting that the lower chamber already passed a spending measure that provides border wall funding.

President Trump may be willing to shut down the government to get Congress to pay for his border wall with Mexico, but that fiscal fight may not happen until December.

"I believe that if we don't do this, we don't get to 3% economic growth", Ryan said.

Trump also appeared ready to tone down his rhetoric - for now - following his fiery Phoenix rally.

The House Speaker held a town hall last night where he said that Trump "messed up" last week by being morally ambiguous about whether there was any comparison between white supremacists and their counter-protesters.

McConnell insisted he and Trump are unified on policy goals, such as funding the government and ending Obamacare, but he had few warm words about their relationship.

"We all need to make clear there is no moral relativism when it comes to neo-Nazis", Ryan said. "This isn't one of these issues where you have a difference in priorities between the House and Senate and White House; we're totally on the same page on this".

The S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Index both fell Wednesday following Trump's threats, while gold futures rose.

Ryan anticipates that Congress will have to pass a short-term funding measure before the September 30 deadline, partly because the Senate faces obligations to confirm federal officials when it returns.

"With a Republican House, Senate and Administration, Republicans have absolutely no excuses for threatening America's families with a destructive and pointless government shutdown", the California Democrat said in a statement.

During his tirade, Trump labeled Democrats as "obstructionists" who are more interested in playing politics than working with him.
