House Speaker Paul Ryan said in an interview with Politico he has doubts that he can work with Hillary Clinton.

"I think she is actually a liberal progressive. I don't think she's faking it," Ryan said about the presumptive Democratic nominee. "I think she's sitting atop a party that's now run by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. ... Our party has moved right, their party has moved really left. I think the common ground, say that you had in the early '90s when I was here as a staffer is nothing like the common ground you have right now."

Ryan, who has had differences with GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump, also said he will address next week's Republican National Convention.

"I want to talk about our ideas, our solutions and how our party should unite. … Our agenda, our solutions and how we ought to unite around our common principles and how we apply those principles to problems," he told the website.
