Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said while House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and President Donald Trump often had a contentious relationship, he and Ryan were "very productive."
"That's been a little bit of a difficult marriage from the beginning," Thune told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Wednesday.
"They're very different in terms of temperament and character, but he is somebody who I think recognized that President Trump presented an opportunity to get some things on the agenda done and frankly, they have been," Thune said.
"I think it's been very productive in this first year of President Trump's presidency working with Speaker Ryan and our leadership here on Capitol Hill, and I think there's a real record of accomplishment," Thune said in the interview.
"You have to look at the record and what they've been able to get done together, but in terms of their personalities, they're very different people."
