House Speaker Paul Ryan drove another wedge between himself and Donald Trump on Tuesday with a stinging rebuke of his party's presumptive presidential nominee's proposed pause on non-citizen Muslim immigration saying 'Muslims are our partners' in the war on terror.
'I do not think a Muslim ban is in our country's interest,' Ryan said during a press conference at the Republican National Committee's Capitol Hill headquarters.
'I do not think it is reflective of our principles not just as a party, but as a country,' he said. 'And I think the smarter way to go in all respects is to have a security test, not a religious test.'
Ryan's comments came just a day after Trump seemed to walk back his December 2015 notion of a religious test for entry into the U.S. until homeland security officials can get a handle on the potential for terrorist infiltration.
Instead he shifted to the idea of nation-specific immigration limits tied to terrorism incidents.
'The immigration laws of the United States give the president powers to suspend entry into the country of any class of persons,' Trump said during a speech in Manchester, New Hampshire, saying such judgments are 'to be determined by the president for the interests of the United States. And its as he or she deems appropriate.'
'I will use this power to protect the American people,' he continued. 'When Im elected I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where theres a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies until we fully understand how to end these threats.'
Ryan's tone emphasized the cooperation the U.S. receives from more moderate Muslim governments around the world.
'This is a war with radical Islam. It is not a war with Islam,' the speaker said.

On a day when the Democrats are uniting to go against Trump w/ their friends in the media, our people are also uniting with the Democrats to go against Trump. Do they think the media and leftists will love them if they do? How did that work out for McCain, Romney, and GW Bush in his second term?
They want Hillary elected, folks. Someone like Ryan seems to agree with her more on immigration, refugees, trade, and foreign policy. They want politics as usual. They keep establishment politics rolling, they wait 4 years, and then they attempt to be white knights against Hillary while being nice. They'll lose of course.
Ryan is a fool.
I do not partner with terrorist murderers, Paul Ryan does not speak for me, and he is a traitor.
Make Ryan and his family live in a no-go zone
What a tool.
The Saudi money is flowing..............
“’I will use this power to protect the American people,’ he continued. ‘When Im elected I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where theres a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies until we fully understand how to end these threats.’”
Huh. Not what Trump said at all, is it? Ryan. SMFH.
Ryan is done.
Ryan is a g-d traitor.
We need guillotines.
Lots and lots of guillotines.
Ryan should just come out and campaign for Hillary. He if much closer to Hillary in opinions and far away from Trump and the American people.
Our partners........................you assw4pe Ryan. I better stop now.
Ryan is someone’s bitch ... he is spewing what he is commanded to spew, by his masters. Someone owns the little fool.
Bust his nuts, Nehlen!
Figuratively, of course, as they exist only in concept.
“Ryan is a fool.”
No, he’s a vindictive self-centered arrogant (without justification), politician who appears to have no core values or principles.
Now Mr. Trump lives in Speaker Ryan’s head RENT FREE.
Absolutely Amazing to watch the Speaker of the House turn his Back on Americans and Stand with TERRORISTS!!
Trump has really exposed ryan for the little liberal he is.
Oh, yeah, like Mateen’s wife who probably drove him to the disco.
Ryan is a very stupid man. He’s got a low forehead which denotes a small brain, lol!
Sick in his head.
