House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced today via Twitter that he will vote for Donald Trump for president of the United States in November. The pair had a momentous meeting last month at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee. At the end of the meeting, Trump admitted that the talk was cordial while Ryan said he was not ready to endorse Trump at that time until he could better understand him. 
 
With this new announcement, Ryan appears to have jumped onto the Trump train that is building steam on the way to the July Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee, and Ryan says that he is confident that Trump can sign into law the Republican agenda in the House of Representatives.
 
Ryan initially made the revelation in an article he submitted today to his hometown newspaper, The Gazette.  In the opinion piece, Ryan wrote that he believes Trump supports his “confident America” policy agenda he has been developing since becoming speaker of the House in 2015. “Through these conversations, I feel confident he (Trump) would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people's lives. That's why I'll be voting for him this fall,” Ryan wrote.
 
Ryan acknowledges that he and Trump don't agree on everything, Ryan said he will continue to speak his mind about their differences. “But the reality is, on the issues that make up our agenda, we have more common ground than disagreement,” Ryan wrote.
