After a week of chaos and scandal at the White House, House Speaker Paul Ryan called on President Donald Trump to speak out against domestic violence.
Trump has refused to publicly condemn former White House staffer Rob Porter who is accused of abusing his two ex-wives.
During a press conference, MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt asked Ryan:
Do you think the White House should publicly condemn domestic violence. Should the president?
Absolutely. Look, I can’t speak for what [Rob Porter] did because I don’t even know the answer to that. But clearly, clearly we should — I mean, come one — clearly we should all be condemning domestic violence.
And if a person who commits domestic violence gets in the government, then there’s a breakdown in the system. There’s a breakdown in the vetting system. And that breakdown needs to be addressed.
