Facing rebellion from within his own party, Donald Trump has dismissed unity as a prerequisite for winning the White House in November.
“I think it would be better if it were unified,” said the presumptive Republican nominee in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday. “And I think there would be something good about it. But I don’t think it actually has to be.”
Trump’s last two opponents in a rumbustious primary, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, dropped out abruptly this week. Senior Republicans, including former presidents George HW Bush and George W Bush and House speaker Paul Ryan, subsequently refused to endorse him.
