"Look, as Republicans, as conservatives, we want to run inclusive campaigns," Ryan told "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson in an interview that will air Sunday. "We want to run an inspiring campaign. We want to inspire our fellow citizens, and we want to earn a mandate to fix the country's problems, and that's the kind of campaign that we are hoping for." 

Trump has recently faced criticism for citing a judge's Mexican heritage as a conflict of interest as he presides over a case involving Trump University. Fellow Republicans, including Ryan, have condemned Trump's remarks. Ryan called Trump's comments "textbook" racism. 

"Hopefully, you know, we can learn from this and move forward with a better tone and campaign that everybody can be proud of, that unifies people, that doesn't divide people," Ryan said.

"I do think that those comments are racist comments," Ryan said of Trump's attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel. "That's why I disavowed them completely. What bothers me about the comments is it doesn't reflect who we are or what we think or how we think as Republicans. ... The notion that someone's ethnicity or race affects the way they do their job is completely the opposite of what we believe."
