People may not love President Donald Trump's personality, but they still support his agenda, Rep. Claudia Tenney said Monday morning.

"Yesterday was a spectacular day in New York State," the New York Republican told CNN's "New Day" program. "I took a motorcycle ride and saw a number of still-standing homemade President Trump signs . . . things haven't really changed in the rural countryside of upstate New York, where people still may not love the president's personality but they support the agenda."

She also noted that she doesn't agree with former chief strategist Steve Bannon's statements about it being time to declare war against establishment Republican lawmakers. Tenney said her district is considered the "Rust Belt" of New York, and many jobs have been lost.

"We are looking for many of the things on the agenda that he wants passed, so I understand the angst coming from the side of Steve Bannon, but I'm an unconventional Republican," Tenney said. "I'm still yet to be endorsed by my local party. Now I'm in Congress."

Instead of declaring war, Tenney said, she wishes Bannon would focus his energies on the seats that could be switched back over to Republicans.

"My district, he won by 16 points and he is still fairly popular here," Tenney said. "We're talking about middle income tax cuts, re-establishing businesses in our community. The trade issue is really big in this community. We have a lot of old companies that have left or gone out of business and we would like to see the restoration of our economy."
