House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Thursday that he works to "lead by example" when trying to influence President Donald Trump's behavior.

Ryan appeared at an town hall held at a Boeing plant in Everett, Wash., with employees on Thursday, where he was asked how he can push Trump to express more "ethical behavior" compared to his comments made after the violence in Charlottesville, Va., earlier in August.

"You control your own actions and you lead by example," he said, according to The Hill, adding somewhat jokingly that "it's a day-by-day deal."

He also said that he urged Americans to "condemn [racism] unequivocally" after Trump made his remarks blaming "both sides" for the violence.

"The words we use are very important." Ryan said. "Every single one of us needs to stand up and speak to this."

Ryan noted that he and Trump must work together to fulfill the party's plans.

"We have different speaking styles, clearly. We're in constant contact to try to put together a shared agenda that we agree on, and we're working together to make that shared agenda," Ryan said, according to Fox Business. "For me, it's really important that the president succeeds, because if he succeeds, then the country succeeds."
