“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. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!” Trump said in a statement.

A guy just won the Republican nomination for president by spending no money, hiring no pollsters, running virtually no TV ads, and just saying what he truly believed no matter how many times people told him he couldn’t say that. Coulter says I always hoped I’d see this once before I died, so pay attention, because it’s the last time we’re going to see it in our lifetimes.

Cruz had everything going against him and still nearly won. If there is a story here, it’s this: In 1976, Ronald Reagan nearly beat Gerald Ford, an incumbent president, for the GOP nomination. In 1980, after 4 years of Carter, he won in a landslide.
Fox News' Sean Hannity said Thursday night he is no longer "ready to support" Paul Ryan after the House speaker, in a stunning political development, said he wasn't yet on board with Donald Trump as the Republican nominee.
