Trump Searching For Support From GOP Leaders

Front-runner Donald Trump will reportedly meet with top Republicans tomorrow in an attempt to woo Washington GOP bigwigs — a sign analysts say signals the anti-Trump establishment may be caving as the threat of a Hillary Clinton presidency looms large.

Trump will meet tomorrow with nearly two dozen top Republicans, The Washington Post reported yesterday, in an attempt to gain the party establishment’s support.

It will be his first major meeting with lawmakers since last fall, when he voiced his opposition to the Iranian nuclear agreement.

The group will consist of congressional leaders, consultants and power brokers, according to the Post report, and it was organized by Trump’s advisers.

GOP strategist Ford O’Connell said the meeting is a smart move on Trump’s part, and “it’s quite possible to get people behind him because they recognize he could be the nominee.”

“He needs to say, ‘Look, I want to unify the party, and I think I’ll be the nominee, and we need to find a way to do this — otherwise, Hillary becomes president,’ ” O’Connell said.
