This meeting was a shock to many but could also be a blessing in disguise. The GOP front-runner Donald Trump is trying to bring the party together to beat Hillary while the remaining candidates are fighting him at every turn.
During the CNN Town Hall, Trump backed off his pledge to support the GOP nominee if he wasn’t the winner. Trump decided to take that direction after the multiple attacks from GOP operatives as they have spent over $500 million to derail the voter’s choice to be the standard-bearer for the party.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) saw not only Trump but Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich back off the pledge and from what we know, Trump and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus decided to talk away from the cameras.

Donald Trump held a “unity meeting with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Thursday, in light of his declaration Tuesday that he would not honor a pledge he signed last year to support the party’s eventual nominee.
In an interview with Eric Bolling on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” Trump described the session as “a very good meeting. Actually a terrific meeting, I think. It’s really a unity meeting.
“I think they wanted it to really discuss unity — and I like discussing unity, too.”
Priebus said the meeting was scheduled days ago and included a discussion about the process heading into the party’s July convention in Cleveland.
Trump leads the Republican race, but is at risk of falling short of the 1,237 delegates needed to become the party’s nominee in the Nov. 8 election, raising the prospect of a contested convention.
“We did talk about unity and working together and making sure when we go to Cleveland, and come out of Cleveland, that we’re working in the same direction,” Priebus told the Fox News Channel.
Trump joined Eric Bolling on the O’Reilly Factor last night on and talked about the meeting with Priebus along with topics. Watch this video below:
