Paul Ryan says Trump's slur against African countries is 'unfortunate, unhelpful'

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

After President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African countries that benefit from the USA visa lottery program as "shitholes", House Speaker Paul Ryan lightly rebuked the president on Friday, calling the comments "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

"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".

Trump on Friday, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

The measure passed 256-164, extending Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act through 2023.

The Wisconsin Republican was asked about the remark during a Q&A event at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. He called immigration a lovely story of America and said people from Africa in his hometown of Janesville are incredible citizens.

Speaker Ryan added that he remains committed to a fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens. "No I don't think there will be" a shutdown, Ryan said.

Kim Kardashian Calls Out Tabloid for Shaming Kris Jenner's Face as 'Chubby'
However, on this occasion, Kim won't have any such worries and she's determined to take a proactive approach from the outset. The reality star took to Twitter on Tuesday to defend momager Kris Jenner against an unflattering (and untrue) headline.

"First thing that came to my mind was, very unfortunate, unhelpful", Ryan 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.

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.

Ryan said he wants immigration reform to focus not on the applicant's country but on what abilities they bring.

"No, I don't there will be", he said.
