House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have dealt with Donald Trump's unexpected rise in contrasting ways, with McConnell keeping his options open.

According to The Hill, one Republican senator said McConnell, who endorsed Trump soon after he secured enough delegate votes to earn the nomination, is "maintaining his options" as he waits to see how next week's Republican National Convention plays out.

Trump is the presumed nominee but anything can happen at the convention, including another candidate seizing the nod.

Ryan, on the other hand, was hesitant to endorse Trump for months before finally doing so in June. He has criticized the real estate mogul one several occasions since, however, in response to his remarks on banning Muslims from the U.S., his retweeting of a tweet containing a purported Star of David, and more.

Still, Ryan has stood by his party's assumed nominee.

"We clearly have a nominee who wants to work with us," Ryan said last week. 

Last month, meanwhile, McConnell said Trump needs to become a "more serious and credible candidate for the highest office in the land."
