  • Paul Ryan says he doesn't think the House will pass entitlement reform this year

Ryan reiterated that he wants to craft a legislative solution to protect so-called "Dreamers" and make the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program permanent. I see this as a thing to celebrate.

"We have to keep those separate because that's just not good government, just lopping all this stuff together", he said. "I thought of my own family".

"While at a luncheon in Wisconsin, Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about those comments in which Trump is reported to have called those nations "****hole countries".

The government faces a January 19 deadline to provide the money to continue funding the federal government. Never said "take them out".

Ryan also said that he is confident that there will not be a government shutdown next week, as lawmakers scramble to negotiate spending legislation to keep it operating.

When the moderator clarified that he was referring to "a word I can't mention" about African countries, Ryan said he was focused on other issues on Thursday and read those comments later at night.

While other Republicans have condemned the president's remarks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has not yet issued a response. Ryan said on Friday, "We need to fix DACA that (A) gets strong bipartisan support, that (B) does it in a thorough way so that we do not have another DACA problem five to ten years down the road".

"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. The president said overhauling social safety net programs is "going to have to be bipartisan".
