Meanwhile, in the wake of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision to not back Trump, the business leader criticized Ryan as a “weak and ineffective leader,” BBC reports. Ryan is one of the Republicans who said he would not defend Trump following the release of a 2005 video showing the business mogul making derogatory comments about women.
In a tweet, the business mogul said, “Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his dishonesty.”

Nevertheless, Trump is receiving a strong support from his running mate Mike Pence. In an event in Iowa, Pence lauded the presidential nominee for apologizing for the comments. “You have nominated a man for president who never quits, who never backs down. He is a fighter, he is a winner.”
Trump’s comments have been highly criticized by several incumbent Republican senators, House members and governors. Many have also called for Trump to bow out of the presidential race.
