Trump meets with D.C. Republicans to discuss ‘party unity’


6462878393_4e91cde1e7_bRepublican frontrunner Donald Trump met with supporters and other D.C. Republicans on Capitol Hill Monday to discuss something that has thus far eluded the Grand Old Party: unity:

Most attendees at the gathering at Jones Day law firm, just blocks from the Capitol, were backbencher lawmakers who have already endorsed Trump. They include GOP Reps. Tom Marino (Penn.), Duncan Hunter (Calif.) and Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.).

“The theme of the meeting was party unity, which we certainly need. So I’m anxious to see what the strategy is on that,” DesJarlais told reporters before heading into the meeting.

Unity will certainly be hard to achieve what with conservative members of the party vowing to do everything than can to block a Trump nomination — even though they can’t decide on a single alternative to coalesce behind.

Trump is in D.C. to speak at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual policy conference, although he may not be welcome there.
