Pennsylvania lawmaker discusses Labor job with Trump

Rep. Lou Barletta says he has discussed the role of labor secretary with President-elect Donald Trump.

The Pennsylvania congressman says he will "consider what we talked about."

Barletta says he and Trump discussed "his infrastructure plan" and "making sure there's a smooth transition and the role I could play in either in Congress or as part of his Cabinet."

Barletta says Trump's recent tweets did not come up. 

Asked if Trump should stop tweeting, the congressman says, "Well, it's his way of talking to the people and he's got a lot of people listening."
