Ryan, Johnson avoid any mention of Donald Trump


BURLINGTON, Wis. (AP) - House Speaker Paul Ryan is campaigning for Sen. Ron Johnson in southern Wisconsin, but is also avoiding expanding on his announcement that he could not support presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump "at this point."

Ryan refused to take questions from reporters following the event Thursday, where he did not refer to Trump. Johnson, who also did not mention Trump, followed Ryan's lead in refusing the take questions.

The campaign stop came at the same time that CNN was broadcasting a pre-recorded interview with Ryan where he said he couldn't support Trump "at this point." Ryan says he hopes to be able to support Trump in the future.

Johnson said Wednesday he would support the GOP nominee for president.
