Donald Trump met with House Speaker Paul Ryan and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Thursday morning, in an effort to establish a more unified Republican party heading into the general election.
A source who also attended the meeting reported that it was “very positive, and a good step toward achieving party unity.”
They released the following joint statement after today’s meeting:
“While we were honest about our few differences, we recognize that there are also many important areas of common ground,” the two said in a joint statement. “We will be having additional discussions, but remain confident there’s a great opportunity to unify our party and win this fall, and we are totally committed to working together to achieve that goal. … This was our first meeting, but it was a very positive step toward unification.”
Ryan spoke about the meeting with Trump at a press conference afterwards. He said “I was very encouraged by what I heard from Donald Trump today,” although he has not given his endorsement of Trump yet.
Reince Priebus also posted a Twitter message:
The meeting was great. It was a very positive step toward party unity.
