Trump: Meeting With RNC Was About 'Unity'
Donald Trump said on "The O'Reilly Factor" that his meeting with Republican National Committee officials today was "terrific" and focused on "unity."
The meeting at the RNC's Washington, D.C., headquarters came just days after the Republican frontrunner backed out of a pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee.
"I think they wanted to really discuss unity, and I like discussing unity, too," Trump said. "Theoretically, my whole life...it's been about unity. I get along with people, I get along with them very well."
He said that he doesn't anticipate the RNC trying to change the rules about needing 1237 delegates to lock down the Republican nomination, considering how well he's been able to mobilize Republicans to vote for him.
"I don't think anybody would even think about playing around with that," Trump said.

When the topic turned to his recent comments on abortion, Trump said that his stance has always been the same; that he has always felt that doctors who perform illegal abortions should be punished, not the women who have them.
Eric Bolling said that the media has been "making a lot of hay" about the remarks and asked the frontrunner if he misspoke or misunderstood the question.
"It could be that I misspoke, but this was a long convoluted subject."
Trump also said much was edited out of the long conversation, and reiterated that his position is the same as the late Ronald Reagan's.
