Duffy: Trump, McConnell, Ryan Must Reach 'Unified Approach'

(Fox News)

Republicans need to work together if they hope to accomplish their agenda items, including funding the government, passing tax reform legislation and getting back to healthcare discussions, Rep. Sean Duffy said Thursday.

"What you've seen play out is the relationship between [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell and [President] Donald Trump," Duffy told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. h

"The nerve endings of that relationship are frayed, and you see that playing out all too publicly."

But to accomplish reaching the party's agenda items, "we have to have a big Republican huddle," said Duffy. "We have to love and hug each other. We are going into football season. You don't see football teams run on the field and run on the field and punch each other. They have to work and fight together if they win together."

McConnell, Trump, and Ryan must figure out their differences behind closed doors, he continued, and "come out with a unified approach."

There are also challenges among the different members of Congress, Duffy said, because there are conservative Republicans, moderate ones, and people in between.

"If we are successful, we need a broad conversation to bring everyone under the tent to accomplish the agenda and tweeting at people I don't think really accomplishes that goal," he said. "What I think the president should be doing is laying out the reasons why we have to accomplish these necessary objectives, which is really for the American people to grow the economy, put people back to work with better wages. Help with healthcare, secure a southern border. Trump voters care about that and they know you get it accomplished when you work together, not fight each other."
