Speaker Ryan Says Trump's 'S***hole Countries' Remarks Are 'Unhelpful'

President Donald Trump's sunrise...									Posted Jan. 11 2018 11:59 AM					Updated Jan. 11 2018 1:54 PM

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday that President Donald Trump's inflammatory comments about immigration from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations are "unfortunate" and not constructive.

Ryan didn't issue a statement on Trump's comments, and when he was asked about what Trump said Thursday, Ryan joked that Trump "said a lot of things yesterday, which one are you talking about?" "So I see this as something to celebrate", Ryan added.

However, in the tweet, Trump griped about surveillance of Americans, called the FISA Act "controversial", and referenced his baseless claim that the Obama administration spied on him during the 2016 campaign. The White House meeting on immigration included a bipartisan group of senators.

And the President further complicated things Thursday when he made highly incendiary comments about immigrants from Haiti and countries in Africa, which have inflamed and brought criticism from many in Trump's own party.

Ryan also said that he is confident that there will not be a government shutdown next week, as lawmakers scramble to negotiate spending legislation to keep it operating. He said he's confident they will reach a long-term spending agreement at some point, even if he can't say when.

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.

Ryan said the President's reported remarks are similar to what his Irish ancestors encountered upon their arrival.

"I thought about my own family", he said, describing his Irish immigrant relatives who came to the USA on what he said were called "coffin ships" and began working the railroads.
