House Speaker Paul Ryan previewed the case he’ll be making for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention next week in a CNN town hall Tuesday, calling the presidential election a “binary choice.”
“She represents a third Obama term. I don’t think that’s good for America,” Ryan said of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “It’s a binary choice. It is either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. It’s either one or the other. You don’t get a third option and I know where I want to go.”
Ryan will speak on Tuesday.Ryan was asked by an audience member how he can morally justify supporting someone who has expressed racist and xenophobic views about minority groups.
Ryan opened his response saying “that basically means you’re going to help elect Hillary Clinton. And I don’t think Hillary Clinton is going to support any of the things you stand for if you’re a Republican.”
Ryan said the appointment of the next U.S. Supreme Court justice could shape the nation for a generation. He also said Trump is more likely than Clinton to help pass the Republican House agenda.
