    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told "Face the Nation" in an interview set to air in full on Sunday that he'd "be okay" with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, as speaker of the House, despite the fact that Ryan "doesn't seem to want" the job.

"I understand that sometimes generating the same energy is difficult," he said at an event later. "We've gone through two years of very difficult work." He then added, with a chuckle: "My hair is grayer. I'm not as young and vibrant as I...
