Breaking with President Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan says he has seen no evidence that 3 million to 5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally voted last November and cost the Republican the popular vote.

Ryan told reporters on Tuesday: "I've already commented on that I've seen no evidence to that effect."

His comments came hours after Trump incorrectly claimed at a White House reception with congressional leaders, including Ryan, that he lost the popular vote to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton because of the vote by those here illegally.

That's according to a Democratic aide familiar with the exchange who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private meeting.

There is no evidence to support Trump's claim.

Another Republican, Pennsylvania Rep. Charlie Dent, said Trump needs to move on. "The election is over," Dent said, and Trump "won fair and square." Trump needs to "get to the serious business of governing," Dent said.
