Priebus is “apoplectic” over Trump’s remarks and called campaign chairman Paul Manafort and other top staffers to voice his “extreme displeasure,” NBC reported, citing a source in the GOP.

Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post on Tuesday that he is "not quite there yet" in terms of endorsing Ryan. The terminology echoed what Ryan said of Trump in May, before the Speaker relented and endorsed Trump for president.

He also tweeted praise of Ryan’s primary opponent, Paul Nehlen, on Monday.

Priebus and Ryan have deep connections going back to their days in Wisconsin state politics.
