Trump Paying First Visit to GOP Rank-and-File in Congress

Trump Paying First Visit to GOP Rank-and-File in Congress

"Just leaving D.C. Had great meetings with Republicans in the House and Senate".

Mr. Trump's ability to raise money also accelerated in June, after his meager fundraising in May left some Republicans alarmed about whether he would be a viable competitor.

Trump's motorcade pulled into an alleyway behind the Republican National Committee building around 8:50 a.m. "Things will all work out in November", according to Rep. Ken Calvert of California.

Hardy said that he represents a district with a large Hispanic, Asian and African-American populations that may be one of the most diverse GOP districts in the country and noted that he is now running against a Latino opponent who is using Trump's comments as a wedge issue.

None of the Republicans from the SC delegation who attended the session were supporters of Trump during the primary, and a few of them, including Sanford, R-S.C., continue to harbor reservations.

"So you know, I just think we need to also look at the positive, which is for the most part we're breaking records when it comes to Republicans participating but we have a few voices out there, and it's their right to speak, that are making it more hard than it needs to be", he said.

Dozens of protesters awaited Trump, shouting slogans and waving signs that said Trump is "Dangerous, Divisive, Deceitful".

The dynamic made for a predictably entertaining back and forth Thursday, when Trump and Senate Republicans met at a gathering meant to build party unity. "Sending our jobs far overseas".

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who has yet to say whether he will support Trump, said he was no closer to doing so after the in-person pitch. "You could feel it", he said.

"What I thought was especially helpful today was our members just got access and got to ask their questions", Ryan said at a press conference later that morning.

Hardy has said that he will support Trump as the party's nominee, but criticized some of the NY businessman's rhetoric.

NHL coming to Las Vegas; new team to start play in 2017
However, the league made a decision to defer action on a second application for a franchise by a group in Quebec City, Canada. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman , right, and Bill Foley attend a news conference Wednesday, June 22, 2016 , in Las Vegas .

The presumptive GOP nominee told lawmakers he wants a united party and blamed the media for campaign flaps that include his recent comments about ex-Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein.

"The next day a wake up to headlines that say "Trump praises Hussein".

They joked a bit about some of their past exchanges during an hour-long meeting, and Trump took questions.

Price said rank-and-file Republicans were receptive.

"I like a lot of what he says, but not how he says it", Rep. Mark Sanford of SC said.

The answer - or at least the beginning of it - comes Friday, when Trump will hold his first Miami campaign events in more than eight months.

"He basically said, 'I am not going to let you down, '" said Rep. Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania.

The meetings come about a week and a half before Trump will formally accept his party's nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Ted Cruz on Capitol Hill Thursday - the first meeting between the two former bitter campaign rivals since Cruz suspended his presidential campaign.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) will be in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, as will Sen. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said he was scheduled to preside over the Senate but that others would benefit more anyway from seeing Trump. The weekend tweet featured what many saw as a Star of David and the words "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!" placed over a picture of Clinton and a pile of money.

The meetings come as two potential vice presidential picks - Sens.

Trump told members of Congress his campaign will be competitive in several states traditionally won handily by Democrats, including Oregon, Washington state, MI and CT. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which tries to elect Democrats to the House, released a new nationwide ad campaign Thursday seeking to link Republicans to Trump.
