Trump Says He Doesn’t Think The Republican Party ‘Has To Be Unified’

GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump said in an interview aired Sunday that he didn’t believe the Republican party needed to be unified in the 2016 election.

“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 said on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Trump paved his way to the nomination with his win last week in the Indiana primary. His candidacy has fractured the party, with some Republicans who have come out against supporting Trump even if he is the nominee, others have thrown him their support.

“I think it would be better if it were unified, I think it would be — there would be something good about it,” Trump continued. “But I don’t think it actually has to be unified in the traditional sense.”
