Speaker of the House Paul Ryan says a meeting with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was "encouraging" but that it was only the start of an effort to unify the party after a long, bitter primary campaign.
Ryan, the top Republican in Congress, sought to downplay stark policy differences between himself and Trump on issues such as health care reform for the elderly and taxes, instead pointing to shared core principles within the Republican Party.
"This is a process, we just began this process," says Ryan, who last week said he could not yet endorse the candidate and again stopped short of doing so despite stressing the need for party unity.
Ryan points to Trump's success in bringing new voters to the party and says Republicans must work to add more voters without losing existing supporters.
