Trump has denied the remarks.

"I read those comments later last night; the first thing that came to my mind was 'very unfortunate, unhelpful, ' " Ryan said in response to a question during an interview at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee WisPolitics Luncheon.

"That is the story we have today and that is the story we had yesterday and that is what makes this is country so exceptional and unique in the first place", he said after describing how his great grandfather started a business now run by his cousins. Never said "take them out". "It is a attractive story of America, and that is a great story". I thought about my own family. He was referring to Trump's asking, during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, why the USA should admit more immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa.

Lawmakers and the White House have sought to craft a compromise that tightens border security including funding a wall on the border with Mexico and limits other entry programs like the green card visa lottery in exchange for shielding young immigrants from deportation.
