On Sunday, Donald Trump debated Hillary Clinton. The day prior, a large number of Republican leaders repudiated his presidential bid following Friday’s leak of a video in which he boasted about sexual assault.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said on Friday that he found those comments “sickening” but did not disavow Trump’s candidacy. On Saturday, he spoke at an event in Wisconsin from which Trump was disinvited. He also remained a supporter of Donald Trump.
