WASHINGTON -— House Speaker Paul Ryan says he and President-elect Donald Trump had a "fantastic, productive meeting" at the Capitol.
 
Trump called the meeting "an honor." He added that, "I think we're going to do some absolutely spectacular things for the American people."
 
Trump may have signaled early agenda items where the Republicans agree. He said: "We can't get started fast enough, whether it's health care or immigration."
 
Ryan then took Trump, Melania Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence out onto his balcony overlooking the Mall. Ryan pointed to where the inaugural platform being is built. That's where Trump will be sworn in.
 
Trump at one point gestured toward the tower of his new hotel, between the White House and the Capitol.
