During an interview with "60 Minutes," CBS host Scott Pelley noted that, "The two most prominent things on the skyline from this vantage point are the Washington Monument and the new Trump Hotel."

“He actually noted that when I took him up here,” Ryan responded.

Ryan gave Trump a tour of the Capitol two days after he became the president-elect. Trump opened his newest hotel in October, several blocks from the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Pelley noted to Ryan that when the two discussed the “evils of Washington,” during the interview, Ryan frequently looked out the window.

“I do, ‘cause that’s where all the bureaucracy’s are. Yea. Yea. Yea. That’s right,” he said.
