Speaker Paul Ryan calls Pres. Trump's immigrant remarks 'unfortunate' and 'unhelpful'

On Twitter, Ryan said that he looked forward to attending the March for Life, and said that he will "march to defend the rights of those who can not defend themselves". He said that regardless of what Mr. Trump said, however, lawmakers need to come together on so-called Dreamers, or those brought to the USA illegally as children.

"It is an honor to have Speaker of the House Paul Ryan address the 45th annual March for Life", said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, the world's largest annual pro-life demonstration. "I don't see us tackling it this year", he said at a WisPolitics Event at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

But after a tense White House meeting with lawmakers during which Trump was accused of using a racist slur, the negotiations took a sharp downward turn.

The Wisconsin Republican added that he does not believe the government will shut down over the continued negotiations regarding spending and DACA. "I thought about my own family".

Speaker Ryan on Pres. Trump comments: "First thing that came to my mind was very unfortunate, unhelpful". "I think it's important we celebrate that".

Ryan also conceded that House Republicans would not aggressively pursue entitlement reform this year, despite saying last month it was on the agenda. "I hear all these stories from my relatives about 'Irish need not apply, '" he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has previously said he does not think the GOP-majority Senate could pass a welfare reform bill on a partisan basis.

CORRECTION: This story's headline was updated to reflect that Ryan's remarks on overhauling entitlement programs referred in this instance to Medicare and Social Security. The Irish people were really looked down upon in those days.
