Trump: I Wouldn't Mind Going Through a Slower Process to Unify the GOP
Tonight on Hannity, Donald Trump weighed in on his highly anticipated meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan on unifying the Republican Party.
The meeting was called after Ryan last week declined to endorse Trump. At a press conference following the meeting today, Ryan still would not publicly do so, but said he was he was “very encouraged” and that they are “planting the seeds” to get unified.
Trump told Sean Hannity that he felt it was a great meeting and that the sentiment was shared by Ryan and others who were there, like RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"We discussed a lot of very important things, and I thought it was really a very, very good meeting. I think Paul felt the same way and everybody else did, also."
Trump had complimentary words for Ryan, saying he felt that he was doing a "good job" leading House Republicans.
"He doesn’t have an easy job. And I don’t mind going through a little bit of a slow process. It’s a very big subject. I mean, we have a lot of things, and I think for the most part we agree on a lot of different items. And we are getting there. "
He said that he and Paul share similar positions on border security, trade and the military.
