Ryan focuses on House agenda in speech to Waukesha business group

House Speaker Paul Ryan avoided mention of Trump during a presentation before a Waukesha business group Thursday, and instead focused on promoting the House GOP's "A Better Way" agenda.

Trump has slammed Ryan as "disloyal" after the Janesville Republican criticized him over his 2005 remarks about women and told the GOP House conference he would not defend or campaign with Trump.

Ryan, however, did make a few references to the election, telling those gathered for the Waukesha County Business Alliance luncheon at the Sheraton in Brookfield that Republicans are running on issues despite what is seen on TV or the Internet.

"There is an actual choice between two different schools of thought, two different philosophies, two different agendas before us in this country, but you wouldn't know it if you turn on the computer or the TV, would you?" Ryan said.

Ryan said he "would like to take a break from all the mudslinging and the mess that's out there on TV" before outlining the House GOP's agenda, which involves fighting poverty, bolstering national security, reforming the regulatory regime, repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act and reforming the tax code.

"This is the agenda that we are running on in Congress, but you wouldn't know about it, would you?" Ryan said.

Ryan urged the audience to "forget about the buzz of the day and forget about what Twitter storm is going on." Referring to the House GOP agenda, Ryan said, "This is who we are, this is what we believe."

The advisory for the event said it would include a Q&A with the audience, but Ryan, left immediately after his remarks.

Ryan campaign spokesman Zack Roday cited Ryan being on a tight schedule for there not being a Q&A.
