During a Republican Convention on Friday, House Speaker claimed that President Trump would be an asset in the coming 2018 midterm elections.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) called President Trump an asset in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections, saying he has resonated with voters in key states.
"The president is strong in these states," Ryan said on Saturday at the Wisconsin Republican convention, according to The Associated Press.
"He's an asset...Whether I'm running around southern Wisconsin or America, nobody is talking about Stormy Daniels. Nobody is talking about Russia. They're talking about their lives and their problems. They're talking about their communities, they're talking about jobs, they're talking about the economy, they're talking about national security," he continued.
However, Ryan reportedly cautioned Republicans about a potential Democratic "blue wave" in November.
Considering the rocky relationship that the Speaker and the President have had, this is a big statement from Ryan and does more to show how the GOP needs President Trump on their side.
