House Speaker Paul Ryan says he doesn’t wish to be president

House Speaker Paul Ryan is officially out of the running for the Republican presidential bid.

“Let me be clear: I don't wish nor will I accept the nomination for our party,” Ryan said at a new conference Tuesday at the Republican National Committee’s headquarters on Capitol Hill.

“I simply believe that if you wish to be the nominee for our party, to be the president you should actually running for it,” he said. “I chose not to do this.”

The news conference followed consistent chatter of whether Ryan would eventually consider the nomination, even though he's consistently said he'll not be running.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz’s for the upcoming summer conference is heating up. Some within the establishment have said they'll go for any candidate as long as it’s not Trump, which had keep Ryan in the hot seat.

But even as Ryan said he won’t be president – won’t even authorize his title to be called on a second ballot at the convention – he made it clear that he's not “going to disappear, either.”

“There is a large debate going on right presently about what kind of country we're going to be,” Ryan said. “As speaker of the House, I believe that I don't just have an opportunity but an obligation to advance this debate.”

Ryan released a campaign-like video, “Politics These Days,” on his website that proposal the message of unifying Republicans and Democrats on April seven, leading some to speculate it was a subtle campaign plug.

“What really bothers me the most about politics these days is this notion of identity politics: that we’re going to win an election by dividing people, rather than inspiring people on our common humanity and our common ideals and our common culture on the things that should unify us,” Ryan said in the.

Ryan was first elected into the House in one thousand nine hundred ninety-eighth, and became House speaker after John Boehner stepped down this past October, a position that Ryan apparently had number interest in accepting until he received pressure to do so.

Asked about the similarities at the news conference, Ryan immediately answered with: “Apples and oranges.”

“Apples and oranges, being speaker of the House is a distant cry from being president of the United States, specifically because I was already in the House,” Ryan said. “ . that's entirely different than getting the nomination for president of the United States from your party without even running.”
