Did he make the RNC Great Again?
So this is the big news this morning:
Multiple outlets reported Thursday afternoon that Republican frontrunner Donald Trump was meeting with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Preibus after the billionaire recanted the party's pledge to back the eventual GOP nominee.
TIME and CBS News confirmed the meeting, citing anonymous sources.
Asked at a town hall event Tuesday night whether he would still adhere to the RNC's pledge, Trump replied, "No, I don't anymore."
The RNC pledge was first circulated among GOP candidates in September 2015 as a largely ceremonial party unity gesture when Trump's insurgent campaign started to gain traction.
The meeting also comes on the heels of Trump's comments that if abortion was outlawed, women who got abortions should be punished. He later said that only abortion providers should be punished if abortion was illegal.
The meeting's over now and at this point nobody knows what happened except Trump said the party would be united.
I'm a little disappointed. The Great Negotiator should have emerged from any meeting with the RNC giving him the nomination by acclamation, amirite? Shouldn't Preibus have come out and stood behind Trump at a press conference like the newest Trump butler?
