“I don’t want his support, I don’t care about his support,” Trump said, according to excerpts of an interview with Fox News.

Ryan, the top Republican in Congress, told party lawmakers on Monday he would not campaign for Trump and would instead concentrate on retaining Republican control of Congress in the Nov. 8 elections.
