It's not exactly an endorsement from Paul Ryan, but Donald Trump could be a step closer to shoring up support among Republicans.
A joint statement from the presidential candidate and the speaker of the House, released Thursday by the Trump campaign, said, "While we were honest about our few differences, we recognize that there are also many important areas of common ground."
Earlier in the campaign season, several prominent Republican leaders had pushed Ryan to run for president against Trump, though he firmly rejected the idea.
