WASHINGTON (AP) House Speaker Paul Ryan has called President-elect Donald Trump to congratulate him on his victory.
Ryan, who criticized Trump during the campaign, is likely to face some opposition among Republicans in his bid to retain his leadership post.
Ryan issued a statement early Wednesday calling Trump’s victory a “repudiation of the status quo of failed liberal progressive policies.”
He says he is eager to work with the new administration to advance the Republican agenda.
First, he urges the GOP to work to bring the country together after the divisive election.
