expressed concern about the direction of politics on both sides of the aisle in an interview with John Dickerson, co-host of "CBS This Morning." When he was asked to address which became a signature of his presidency, and whether they sow "division" in the country, Ryan said "sometimes".
"Well, not always, but sometimes …. I worry about tribal identity politics becoming the new norm for politics … As conservatives, we always thought this was a kind of left-wing thing … unfortunately the law also identity policy, "Ryan said.
Ryan offered no broader criticism of Mr. Trump's style of politics, but when Dickerson asked whether the president practiced "inclusive politics," Ryan said, "Sometimes he does that and sometimes does not."

Ryan does not run for election, but he fights for Republicans likewho also spoke with Dickerson, and is the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress.
"I think this election will focus on results against resistance … What I know does not contradict the voters is this resistance effort, in which you do not agree regardless of whether you agree with the focus of this government I think both parties have to deal with tribalism, "said Stefanik.
Americans will vote in the midterm elections in less than three weeks. The current CBS election poll predicts that Democrats in the House of Representatives would win 226 seats in the House of Representatives if the elections were held today – eight more than the 218 seats to take control. However, Ryan said he felt "pretty good" that the Republicans would keep control of the house.
"I think our voter enthusiasm is where it needs to be and, more importantly, we have a great record on which to build," Ryan said. "The agenda we pursued in 2016 is the agenda that we implemented in 2017 and 2018. The economy is booming, the military is being rebuilt, the Veterans Administration has been overhauled, we have deregulated companies for them can stop again. " , "
Ryan called last year's tax cuts the most important accomplishments of his party." We cut taxes and we have higher revenues, "he said." The economy has grown 4.2 percent this quarter. "A Gallup However, polls say that 46 percent of the country does not approve of the tax cuts, and 51 percent say that the cut did not help them financially.
"I think the narrative and the political rhetoric are obviously mixed. But when broken down into its components, it is overwhelmingly popular. People are thrilled with the fact that they are getting a double tax credit This year, people like their standard deduction being doubled, "Ryan said.
Dickerson has compared Ryan's explanation that" constituents "of the tax cuts are giving Democrats over The Affordable Care Act said they were popularized.
"I think I'm putting more money in my pocket than higher health insurance premiums, I think the answer is pretty clear. People like the fact that they get bonuses that 90 percent of American workers have bigger paychecks this year, "Ryan said.
Separately, Dickerson pressured him into rising deficits, some of which stem from the Republican tax cut Deficit figures show that $ 779 billion was added to the deficit last year – the highest figure since 2012, when the US was in recession.
"If this were a situation in which you would try to take control of that To win back home, you would talk about your speech from beginning to end. But now you're on the hook, "Dickerson Ryan asked
" Revenues have risen this year. Believe it or not, we cut taxes at the beginning of the year and we have higher revenues this year. Why do we have higher revenues? Because we have faster economic growth, higher wages. "" More taxes are coming into the government, "Ryan said.
Dickerson stumbled back, pointing out that, considering the inflation, some of the revenue from the previous tax policy and the revenue that would rise from the population, the revenue is lower than they should be.
"Let me say so. We've cut taxes and we still have higher government revenues today, "Ryan said." But you know that this number is a shaky number and that it's actually lower than if the policy had remained static. "
" If the economy is not up to par, that's just right. But the economy has grown as a result of this policy …. Now we had, we had 4.2 percent growth from this last quarter. This higher economic growth brings in "more revenue," Ryan said.
Stefanik is also the deputy chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, the first woman to hold this title. Earlier this year, she told CBS This Morning that it was a "tough political climate." When asked what she meant by that, Stefanik said, "I think there's a lot of volatility, John, in terms of media speed, it's faster than ever, but I'm very proud of it on my earnings record."
