(NBC) -

After nearly a month being considered the presumptive Republican nominee, House Speaker Paul Ryan said he will vote for Donald Trump.

Ryan's announcement, published in a column in his home town newspaper, stops short of an endorsement, instead saying that he will cast his vote for Trump in November, saying that after several conversations, "I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas ... into laws to help improve people's lives."

Ryan doesn't sugarcoat his disapproval with some of the things Trump says.

"It's no secret that he and I have our differences. I won't pretend otherwise. And when I feel the need to, I'll continue to speak my mind," Ryan wrote. But he added that the choice between Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump is the better alternative.

"One person who we know won't support it is Hillary Clinton. A Clinton White House would mean four more years of liberal cronyism and a government more out for itself than the people it serves. Quite simply, she represents all that our agenda aims to fix," Ryan wrote.
