In a teaser for an upcoming 60 Minutes interview, Ryan tells Pelley his relationship with Trump is good, and that they speak on the phone nearly every day. On whether he thought Trump would be nominated:
I didn’t see this one coming. He knows that. Donald Trump’s a very– he was a very unconventional candidate. He’s going to be an unconventional president. What I like about it, in my, like I said, almost daily conversations, is he’s just a get-things-done kinda guy.
On the separation of powers.
We’ve talked about that extensively. We’ve talked about– the Constitution, Article I on the Constitution, the separation of powers. He feels very strongly, actually, that– that, under President 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.
