House Speaker Paul Ryan described his meeting with President-elect Donald Trump Friday “very exciting,” according to the press pool.

“We had a great meeting to talk about our transition. We are really excited about getting to work and hitting the ground running in 2017. And getting this country back on track,” the Republican from Wisconsin said at Trump Tower.

Ryan had been critical of President-elect Trump during the campaign, and the real estate mogul launched firece attacks against his own party leaders.

After the election, Ryan called for unity, echoing Trump’s victory speech in saying Americans should come together.
