During the town hall, Ryan was asked whether he believed Trump needed to publicly apologize for his comments about Charlottesville.
MT Boyle, chief of staff of Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave, we need a voice of reason to unite the party, what are your plans to reunite the party? “And I do think he could’ve done better”. “Where we may disagree on how to achieve that goal”. “But also it is a matter of economic growth … also it’s fairness”.
