Bitter partisanship was on full display this week in Washington.
Tuesday's State of the Union was full of political theater. President Trump accused of snubbing Speaker Nancy Pelosi's attempt at a handshake. Speaker Pelosi ending the night by dramatically ripping of the President State of the Union speech.
And all of that took place just hours before only the third presidential trial in American history where Trump was acquitted of two impeachment charges and avoided removal in a near party-line vote.
So, how does America heal and move forward as the 2020 election heats up? This is what we asked Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) earlier this week on the Rundown. He co-chairs the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, whose members all wore purple ties or scarves to State of The Union to symbolize unity.
Rep. Reed told host Jessica Rosenthal how he is working with Democrats to get bipartisan bills passed despite a very divided country and Congress.
The New York Congressman also laid out a plan to bring down the temperature and bring civility back to Washington D.C..
Because of time, we could not include our entire conversation in our original Fox news Rundown segment.
On the Fox News Rundown Extra you will hear our full conversation with Congressman Reed where he addresses more of this week's tense political movements, but explains why he believes most of the country still wants unity, civility and less heated rhetoric.
