Ryan told WISN in Milwaukee, "Look, the comment about the judge the other day just was out of left field for my mind. ... I completely disagree with the thinking behind that."

Trump told The Wall Street Journal the judge in the lawsuit against him over Trump University has "an absolute conflict" of interest because of his "Mexican heritage."

Those comments have brought Trump criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.

"Based on his ethnicity, suggesting he has an inherent conflict of interest because of his heritage. 'A Hispanic cannot judge a case against me.' That is what he Trump is saying," Megyn Kelly said.

Besides the issue of racial discrimination, many legal experts told many major news outlets, like The Wall Street Journal, that the comments from a major party presidential nominee were also "an unusual affront on an independent judiciary."

On Thursday, Ryan ended his month-long holdout on endorsing anyone and said on Twitter he'd vote for Trump.

On Thursday, Ryan tweeted: "I'll be voting for @realDonaldTrump this fall. I'm confident he will help turn the House GOP's agenda into laws."

In the radio interview, Ryan seemed optimistic that House Republicans could control Trump, saying, "We believe we in the House can add a keel and a rudder to this ship, and give it substance and give it direction."
