Manafort: 'The Republican Party IS United' Behind Donald Trump
Donald Trump's campaign manager says that the Republican Party is more united than not, saying that both the campaign and the party are solidly behind the candidate.
"The Republican Party is united," Paul Manafort said today on America's Newsroom. "Do we agree on everything? No."
He said that Trump is a political outsider, so his relationships with party leadership aren't as deep and long as they'd be with a traditional candidate - "but that's not to say he doesn't have good relations."
Manafort said the campaign was working "very strongly" with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and with the Republican leadership in the House and Senate.
"I think you'll see a coming together of both Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump in the course of this campaign because they all agree on one thing: we need a Republican president and a Republican Congress, and then we'll make the changes that America needs."
