The Republican nominee, Donald Trump, has declined to endorse the re-election campaign of the House speaker, Paul Ryan, the highest-ranking member of his party in Washington, as divisions intensified in the GOP.

“I like Paul, but these are horrible times for our country,” Trump said in an interview with the Washington Post, a publication that is still banned from Trump’s campaign events.

“We need very, very strong leadership. And I’m just not quite there yet. I’m not quite there yet.”

His wording was presumably a reference to Ryan’s comments in May, when the House speaker was asked if he was backing Trump: “I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now.”

Both Ryan and McCain are longtime critics of many of Trump’s remarks, but both have said they would support the Republican nominee in the general election.
