US House Speaker Ryan 'Pleased' With Trump's Strategy on Afghanistan

President Donald Trump talks with House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington. Republican leaders on Wednesday Aug. 16 tiptoed around Trump's extraordinary comments on white

House Speaker Paul Ryan will answer audience questions in a CNN town hall live from his home district of Racine, Wisconsin, minutes after President Donald Trump explains his Afghanistan strategy.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says it will be "far easier" to do tax reform than a health overhaul. "We want to unify this country against this kind of hatred and this kind of bigotry, so I think that would be the absolute worst thing to do".

"I concluded that the security threats we face in Afghanistan and the broader region are enormous", Trump said.

Moderator Jake Tapper corrected Ryan, saying Trump's suggestion that "very fine people" were participating in a march with neo-Nazis was actually "morally wrong", not morally ambiguous.

But for Woodward Jr., he didn't quite buy Ryan's premise and he needs more information, he said. But who is he to say the counter-protesters who put their bodies on the line in Charlottesville, for example, have to do more? While House Republicans managed to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, their Senate counterparts did not, casting doubt on how effective the GOP is at legislating now that they have control of all three branches of government.

"Given our shared upbringing, I'm sure that you are as shocked as I am at the brazen expressions, public expressions of white supremacy and anti-Semitism that our country has seen since the November election", Feingold said at a town hall Monday televised by CNN.

"We can not allow another safe haven for terrorists to materialize again", Mr. Ryan said, labeling what he saw as a new Trump doctrine: "principled realism".

Most data plans will get 720p video on smartphones, but customers won't have any option to completely un-throttle video. Meanwhile, existing customers can keep their unlimited plans, but their video quality is now limited to 720p as well.

"I do believe that he messed up in his comments on Tuesday when it sounded like a moral equivocation, or at the very least, moral ambiguity when we need extreme moral clarity", Ryan said.

Ryan agreed, confirming that "it was not only morally ambiguous, it was equivocating, and that was wrong".

"And so it is high time we fixed this mess of a tax code and get ourselves in a position where American businesses, it makes sense to stay American, and we tax our businesses in a competitive way so that we're not pushing them overseas". This was Ryan's first in-person, in-district town hall since October 2015.

"So the status quo isn't working, sister", Ryan said.

"In the wake of Charlottesville, Democrats and Republicans alike have been moved to reject the president's ambivalent and wholly inadequate response to acts of domestic terrorism." said a statement from Nadler's office. And Ryan's talking point, popular among conservatives, measures poverty only by a family's income, rather than including the value of housing subsidies, food stamps, medical assistance, the Earned Income Tax Credit and other government supports created over the last 52 years.

Ryan has denounced the violence and the white supremacists, but has not directly criticized Trump's comments.
