Republican lawmaker Marsha Blackburn on Saturday said President Donald Trump's inaugural message to the American people was one of inclusion - we're all in this thing together.

"What I heard from Donald Trump was a message that looked out to people gathered before him and people around the country and said, 'Hey, it's you and me, babe,'" Blackburn said on CNN's "New Day" morning program.

"People are tired of elitism and what has gone on in Washington. And I thought he spoke exactly as he had campaigned," the Tennessee Republican said. "Now, is there a job of bringing some of those that had opposed him still into hope and expectation of what he's going to deliver? Absolutely."

Blackburn said it's all about "jobs, jobs, jobs."

"The jobs are bringing back manufacturing, bringing back the coal country, utilization of clean coal technology, Blackburn said.

But also "retraining people for other jobs, call centers. Increasing educational opportunities. Logistics," Blackburn said.

Blackburn said Trump was right to call out Capitol Hill for not doing right by the American people.

"I think the body as a whole has been stymied by inaction," Blackburn said. "And I am one of those that has said let's send the power and the money and the ability back to the states and local governments. And get it out of Washington, D.C. for people that do not know these communities are making decisions that impact them."
