Ryan reportedly ready to end Trump impasse

Donald Trump speaks at the Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas

ABC News reported that a top Trump official said Ryan will be making the endorsement.

The 46-year-old speaker is the only member of the Republican congressional leadership who has not formally embraced the presumptive Republican nominee. "I hope it is because the person who's getting the nomination of our party is the person to lead our party", Ryan said referring to the fact that more people trust Trump rather than him.

"I haven't made a decision", Ryan told reporters summoned to his Capitol office suite.

Ryan set up the call with Trump to continue discussing the party's campaign agenda, a Ryan aide said.

Trump shot back during an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos that he didn't think the Republican Party needed to be unified behind his candidacy.

Ryan said his staff and Trump's were in contact virtually daily.

Money raised from "Trump Victory" will go to the Republican National Committee and state parties in Arkansas, Connecticut, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.

The speaker faces some pressure from inside his party to smooth things over and form a united front against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November.

Ryan spoke less than a day after a Bloomberg report, citing unnamed "confidants", suggested a Trump endorsement is imminent.

"What you will see are detailed policy papers", the Wisconsin Republican said.
