Paul Ryan is endorsing Donald Trump's presidential campaign after weeks of "dialogue" that the house speaker says have made him "confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people's lives."

Ryan, who hedged on supporting Trump last month after it became clear he would be the Republican Party's presidential nominee, revealed his support for Trump in a column published by his hometown newspaper in Jaynesville, Wisconsin Thursday.

"We've talked about the common ground this agenda can represent. We've discussed how the House can be a driver of policy ideas. We've talked about how important these reforms are to saving our country. And we've talked about how, by focusing on issues that unite Republicans, we can work together to heal the fissures developed through the primary.

"Through these conversations, I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people's lives. That's why I'll be voting for him this fall."

Donald Trump quickly welcomed Ryan's support.
