Ryan tells CBS in an interview excerpt that aired Thursday that he and Trump “speak about every day. And it’s not about looking … back in the past. That’s behind us. We’re way beyond that.”

Ryan now calls Trump a “get-things-done kinda guy,” but he insists Congress won’t simply give the incoming president a blank check.
The speaker says Trump believes President Barack Obama “stripped a lot of power away” from Congress, and wants to “reset the balance of power, so that people and the Constitution are rightfully restored.”
