]>> The tete-a-tete complete with a media crush and protest worthy of a high stakes, international summit ended with cordial words from the Trump camp. Trump tweeting things working out really well.

But after the two met, Ryan tweeting an image from what he said was his most important meeting of the day, Ryan in a room full of school children, not Donald Trump.
