Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama indicated Tuesday he's open to "incremental steps" on job growth legislation.
"It's realistic for us to get a package moving quickly that may not include all the things I think need to be done," he said.
Obama said he hoped an initial bill would help "build trust" and allow Congress to then move on to other measures.
"We spent a lot of time in this meeting discussing a jobs package and how we can move forward on that," Obama said. "And if there are additional ideas, I will consider them."
