Rex on Trump: 'I'm a football guy."

The Buffalo Bill's head coach Rex Ryan says he is strictly focused on football when asked about his support for presidential candidate Donald Trump. Rex Ryan introduced Trump at a Buffalo rally in April.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- On Monday, 2 On Your Side's Steve Brown asked Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan if his support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had changed since the release of a recording of Trump making lewd comments about women. 

Rex Ryan introduced Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at a rally in Buffalo's First Niagara Center in April. 

"Before the season started, you introduced Trump at a rally in Buffalo," Steve Brown asked Ryan at a press conference Monday. "Does your support of him change in any way because of the video that surfaced on Friday?"

The press conference was focused on the Bills' third straight win in a row Sunday against the Rams in Los Angeles. 

Rex replied with a smile, "Well I can honestly tell you this: I might be the only guy in America who hasn't seen a video...that hasn't seen debates...or anything else. All my thing is I'm under a rock. I'm focused on whoever we are playing, and that's it."

Rex added, "I don't know a whole lot about politics or anything else. I'm strictly a football coach, and that's all I am." 

A spokesperson for the Bills ended Ryan's news conference after the coach's answer.

Before April's rally, the Bills made it clear that Ryan was acting as a private citizen and not representing the organization in choosing to introduce Trump. Ryan also said at the time that his introduction at the rally should not be viewed as an endorsement.
