Trump ends standoff with Ryan as he works to repair mistakes

Still, as she has often done during her career, Clinton attributed much of her low standing on this issue to attacks from Republicans.

Iowa's Republican Gov. Terry Branstad appeared with the celebrity businessman at an afternoon rally, his third appearance in the swing state over the past two weeks. Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos offered a blunt message ahead of the presidential nominee's arrival: "We are Ryan Republicans here in Wisconsin, not Trump Republicans". "We are Ryan Republicans here in Wisconsin, not Trump Republicans". The moment came as she opens substantial leads over Mr Trump in opinion polls.

Ryan, McCain and Ayotte had all assailed Trump for his disparaging remarks.

"The real story is the divisiveness of the Trump campaign and the selfishness of the candidate himself", Carter said. "So you know I'm just going to rise above this stuff, and I'm not going to get involved in some sort of petty back and forth, I see no objective in doing that".

Trump called Ayotte a "rising star".

In a statement, Trump's campaign said his economic advisory panel included former steel executive Dan DiMicco; tobacco company Vector Group Ltd President and CEO Howard Lorber; and Trump campaign finance chairman and investment manager Steven Mnuchin. "I'm not quite there yet", Trump said in the Post interview.

She also acknowledged that many people do not trust her. "But I will do this because I feel I have to in order to defend Republicans and our principles so that people don't make the mistake of thinking we think like that".

Trump said, "This truly is one of the most important elections, certainly in my lifetime, because we're about to go- - if we lose it, we are in the wrong direction and maybe it's gone".

Trump's refusal to back Ryan in a Washington Post interview on Tuesday had stunned Republicans already unnerved by his unorthodox candidacy for president.

"Mr. Trump did this for party unity and I applaud him for that", Nehlen said.

They see Clinton and President Obama as fundamentally untrustworthy, pointing to the recent reporting about the United States' $400 million cash payment to Iran as part of a larger nuclear detente deal.

The New York billionaire has cited a $400 million payment the US made to Iran this year, delivered on the same day that Iran released four American hostages.

All three have also been critical of Trump throughout his campaign.

"I'm not going to try and psychoanalyze this stuff", the House speaker told Weber. Trump tweeted early Friday morning.

He has refused to admit any error, however, on a higher-profile dispute with an American Muslim family whose son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq.

"We need unity. We have to win this election", Trump told a rally in Ryan's state of Wisconsin, as he stressed a "big tent" Republican Party is the only way to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in November's election.

This endorsement comes after Trump caused more discord within the party earlier this week when he said he was "not quite there yet" when asked if he supported Ryan's re-election.
