Trump visits Capitol Hill as Republicans seek unity

0

WASHINGTON: Like a victorious general, Donald Trump visited Capitol Hill Thursday to meet with Republican lawmakers scrambling to put up a united front behind him as the party convention nears. But in a sign of the bad blood, if not outright disgust, that Trump still stirs as the presumptive presidential nominee, some key lawmakers found reasons to skip the meetings, one with House members and another with senators. Scheduling conflicts were the most commonly stated pretext. And in a statement issued after the meeting with House members, Speaker Paul Ryan had nothing positive to say about Trump—other than to thank him for the visit and what Ryan called Trump’s desire to unify the party. Trump answered questions for more than 40 minutes from around 20 House members on a variety of topics, said Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
