“There’s a great deal of frustration among rank and file members who represent more moderate districts and frankly who represent districts that Donald Trump won in 2016. They’re very frustrated," she added Sunday during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"They’ve been to the White House.

Conway also said during the interview that Democratic members of Congress are invited to the White House to negotiate on issues such as border security.

“They’re invited. The offer stands. The invitation is open," she said. 

Conway added that Congress is "unserious" about "coming to the table."

“Let’s try to work together. But we have an unserious Congress that is not coming to the table. And the Republicans failed to do their job when they were in charge, no doubt. And Democrats now are failing to come together in the House," she said.
