“I’ll do whatever he wants.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan made waves Monday when he said if Donald Trump were to ask him to step down as as chairman of the GOP convention he would.

“He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention,” Speaker Ryan told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Ryan said his main priority is to help unify the party, which he believes can be done by end of summer. Ryan is reeling from backlash after he announced on Thursday that he was not ready to endorse Donald Trump.

Now, it seems, he’s tempering his original stance.

“I just want to get to know the guy … we just don’t know each other,” Ryan said.

“I never said never. I just said (not) at this point. I wish I had more time to get to know him before this happened. We just didn’t,” he said.

Ryan also vehemently bucked the idea of a third-party candidate entering the race in an effort to derail Trump.

“I’ve made it very clear to people publicly and privately; I think an independent run by anyone would be a disaster. I think that’s a bad idea,” Ryan said. “We need to win the White House and keep Congress. And having an independent run by anyone would defeat that purpose — would defeat that goal.”

“I want to help unify our party so that we’re at full strength so that we can defeat Hillary Clinton,” Ryan said. “I believe between now and July we will be able to figure out how to unify our party.”

Ryan’s statements came a little too late for many voters:
