Sen. Joe Manchin on Sunday urged President Donald Trump to work with Democrats on a new healthcare bill, saying he wants to "meet in the middle."

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," the West Virginia Democrat said he wants the president to succeed for all Americans.

"The only thing I'm saying to President Trump...He's the president of all of America, Democrats and Republicans, independents, those who voted for him, those who voted against him, he is our president and I want him to succeed," Manchin said.

And, he added, "I want him to know there are Democrats that want to work with him."

"Look at some of us, work with us Democrats who are willing to meet you in the middle, who have always been willing to meet you in the middle."

Manchin also pushed back on Trump's charge that Democrats are obstructionists.

"I truly respectfully disagree with that statement," he said. "I think that was a little over the top."
