Walker will be in northern Wisconsin with residents and officials recovering from flash flooding last month. The governor's spokesman, Joe Fadness, said Walker will campaign with Trump in the future if he does not have a conflict.

Ryan and Johnson said they had scheduling conflicts.

Earlier this week, Trump declined to endorse Ryan for reelection, saying he is "not quite there yet." Ryan is facing a primary challenge next week.

After Trump's announcement, Walker tweeted a photo of himself with the Speaker, saying "We stand with Paul Ryan!"

Johnson, who said he supports but doesn't endorse Trump, on Wednesday said the GOP presidential nominee should apologize to the family of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in 2004 in Iraq.

Trump attacked the Khan family after Khizr Khan, Humayun's father, criticized him during last week's Democratic National Convention.
