Paul Ryan: Trump’s ‘Heart’s in the Right Place’ on Race

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Sunday defended President Trump from allegations of racism amid his criticisms of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. “I know his heart's in the right place,” Ryan said on CBS’ Face the Nation, referencing his displeasure with the president’s reaction to the Charlottesville white supremacist rallies. “I’ve had some candid conversations with him about this.” Last year, Ryan rebuked Trump for his attacks on a Mexican-American federal judge, calling the attacks the “textbook” definition of racist remarks.
