Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said Wednesday that he’s "certain" President Donald Trump has lied, but Republicans are unified in working for limited government.

"I’m certain that he has," Lee said on MSNBC after he was asked if he thought Trump has ever lied. "But my purpose to come here today is not to focus on those things. My purpose is to call on my colleagues, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, to get behind the agenda of trying to reform the government and make it work for the people rather than the other way around.”

He added later that he would support Trump as long as the president is fighting for limited government.

"I think there is a commitment within the Republican Party to fight for limited government, to fight to restore separation of powers and federalism — these constitutional powers that are structural in nature, and that have made our country strong over time," Lee said. "I hope to continue to fight for those, and in so far as this president is willing to fight for those things, I’ll stand by him in that effort."

Lee also was asked about Trump’s public feuds with Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., but only said that fights like these shouldn’t happen, and that only the people involved must work things out.

"If we were all to chase every squirrel that comes running along in the form of a personal dispute or a mischaracterization of someone, or someone's integrity or intent, we'd be very busy doing that and not focusing on the government, on that which we need to reform internally," he said.
