As notoriously reported in the media the past few days, Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan finally sat down at the GOP headquarters in D.C. to discuss further plans of party unification over Trump’s presumptive nominee status. Also in the meeting was RNC chairman Reince Priebus, the guiding conduit between Trump and the GOP leaders’ strengthening relationship. The meeting was limited, not very long, and was shrouded away from public exposure.
Outside the headquarters, anti-Trump and anti-GOP protesters chanted the inane calls of “R.I.P. the GOP.” Most of the protesters were young and dressed characteristically to mock Trump. For bystanders, they made good cell phone camera video captures. For effectiveness, they achieved nothing. Priebus announced on Twitter the outcome of the session:
No official announcements have been made of the GOP announcing Trump as the official nominee, but if Priebus’ tweet is any indication, the GOP leadership is beginning to mend strong ties with the presumptive Republican nominee.
