"We will have disagreements, but we will disagree as friends and never stop working together toward victory," Donald Trump said.

In June, Ryan wrote: "It's no secret that he and I have our differences. ... But the reality is, on the issues that make up our agenda, we have more common ground than disagreement."

Trump endorsed Ryan for re-election at a Green Bay, Wisconsin, rally on Friday. He also endorsed U.S. Sens. John McCain and Kelly Ayotte.

"I need a Republican Senate and a House to accomplish all of the changes that we have to make," Trump said.

Ryan wrote, "House Republicans are helping shape that Republican vision ... by offering a better way ahead."

And both were pretty wary to endorse the other.

Trump told the Washington Post on Tuesday, "I'm just not quite there yet."

"Will you support him?" Jake Tapper asked Ryan on CNN. 

"Well, to be perfectly candid with you, Jake, I'm just not ready to do that at this point. I'm not there right now," Ryan replied.

While they may not seem like an olive branch, the mutual endorsements are likely more about uniting the GOP than smoothing over differences. Still, Ryan's campaign said in a statement "he appreciates the gesture."
