There may be much Republican hand-wringing over Donald Trump’s presumptive nomination to face against his Democratic challenger to the White House, but the boastful billionaire says he doesn’t care, and it doesn’t matter.
A growing chorus of senior Republican leaders have joined the ‘anyone but Trump movement,’ including 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the last two Republican presidents, George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush.
‘Does it have to be unified?’ Trump asked George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week about the Republican Party. ‘I’m very different than everybody else, perhaps, that’s ever run for office. I actually don’t think so.’
Asked how he could win in that case, he said: ‘I think it would be better if it were unified, I think it would be – there would be something good about it. But I don’t think it actually has to be unified in the traditional sense.’
Trump said he expected even some Democratic voters to throw their support behind him to win the general election.
