Likely Republican nominee Donald Trump said on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that leaders in the Republican Party will have to come around him because he will staying true to his principles.
“I have to stay true to my principles,” Trump stated.
Trump can claim he has the will of the people on his side, because the billionaire is on track to beat George W. Bush’s 2000 record of 10.8 million votes in the GOP primary.
On Sunday, Trump’s recent hire Paul Manafort, who is acting as Trump’s convention manager, said on Fox News, “It’s his agenda that has just been cemented as what the American people or at least Republicans and independents who voted for him want.”
Trump also said he doesn’t think the party needs to be unified. “Does it have to be unified? I’m very different than everybody else, perhaps, that’s ever run for office. I actually don’t think so,” Trump stated.
“I think it would be better if it were unified. There would be something good about it. But I don’t think it actually has to be unified in the traditional sense.”
