Governor Scott Walker had very little to say on Tuesday, regarding Republican Presidential opponent Donald Trump’s loss of Republican endorsements.
“Donald Trump’s statements were inexcusable. I just focus on the fact that I did not agree with what he said . . . I’m not doing any more beyond that,” Walker said following a listening session with local officials in Rhinelander.
The governor was not asked whether he intends to vote for Trump.
Walker’s comments came as Trump launched a storm of social media comments bashing Republicans. “Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty,” Donald Trump tweeted.
Trump went after Ryan on Twitter a day after the House Speaker from Janesville told House Republicans that he’d no longer defend or campaign with Trump. That decision came in the aftermath a videotape showing Trump making vulgarly aggressive comments about women.
Trump’s campaign said late Tuesday that he will be back in Wisconsin next Monday, although a location and time for the stop have not yet been announced.
Trump had been scheduled to attend an annual Republican party event in Walworth County last weekend, but Ryan disinvited him.
