>> This Congress is going to be the busiest Congress, maybe ever.>> President Donald Trump in Philadelphia, Thursday, looking to reassure House and Senate Republicans after breaking sharply with the party on a host of issues in his first days in office. Alleging widespread voter fraud, praising the use of torture, and tangling with US ally Mexico after signing an order to build the long-promised wall along the US border.

APPLAUSE
>> Now, we have to deliver.>> Trump speaking as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to keep the focus on repealing and replacing Obamacare. And revamping the tax code as the GOP hones its agenda at a two day retreat. Ginger Gibson is following the story.
00:00:43
>> Donald Trump has always been an outsider and even as he takes over the White House, that position remains. He's not got a long history with either Speaker Ryan or Leader McConnell, and there's often the appearance that they're singing out of a different songbook.>> We've also withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, paving the way for new one-on-one trade deals that protect and defend the American worker.
00:01:07
And believe me, we're gonna have a lot of trade deals. Mitch, don't worry about it. Just give me a little time. But they'll be one on one. They weren't be a whole big mashpot.>> They have different priorities and different things they want to get done. And it's not become clear yet that they're willing to move past some of their differences and begin to really work together.
00:01:28
>> Instead Ryan and Mitch McConnell peppered with questions about Trump's musings, like telling ABC news he thinks torture quote works.>> And torture is not legal so and we agree with it not being legal.>> They'd much rather be setting the agenda and determining what people are about.
00:01:43
Some of them are getting frustrated that Donald Trump's discussion of those issues have distracted from what they want to be focused on.>> This as thousands of anti-Trump protestors spent a second day gathered outside the meeting.>> It's a great honor to be here. Thank you very much.
00:01:58
>> A meeting with Trump, intended as a coming together party, morphing into a session on how to bridge a widening gulf between the GOP and the White House.
