    Rep. Dave Trott, R-Mich., speaks in Auburn Hills, Mich., Monday, Nov. 20, 2017.

    Republican Rep. Dave Trott told CNBC on Monday that President Donald Trump was a "factor" in his decision to retire from the House at the end of his second term.

    "We have different styles and I sometimes don't understand some of the things he does and says," said Trott, who represents Michigan's 11th congressional district.

    Trott is one of more than two dozen Republican House members not seeking re-election in 2018.
