Paul Ryan on Trump: We've Made Up and Talk 'Almost Daily'

("60 Minutes"/CBS News)

House Speaker Paul Ryan said that he and President-elect Donald Trump have patched up their differences and talk by telephone "almost daily."

"We're fine," the Wisconsin Republican told Scott Pelley in an interview to be broadcast on "60 Minutes" on Sunday on CBS. "We're not looking back. We're looking forward.

"We speak about every day," Ryan added. "And it's not about looking back in the past.

"That's behind us. We're way beyond that."

In January, Ryan denounced Trump's attack on a federal court judge because of his Mexican heritage as "the textbook definition of a racist comment" — and Trump later slammed the speaker as ineffective and disloyal.

Ryan told Pelley that he did not expect Trump to win the nomination — "I didn't see this one coming" — and called him "a very unconventional candidate.

"He's going to be an unconventional president. What I like about it, in my … almost daily conversations, is he's just a get-things-done kinda guy."

Ryan and Trump also have talked "extensively" about the president-elect's need to work with Congress.

"We've talked about that extensively," he told Pelley. "We've talked about the Constitution, Article I of the Constitution, the separation of powers.

"He feels very strongly that, under President [Barack] Obama's watch, he stripped a lot of power away from the Constitution, away from the legislative branch of government.

"And we want to reset the balance of power, so that people and the Constitution are rightfully restored."
