GOP likely presidential nominee Donald Trump told NBC on Wednesday he's confident he "can unite much" of the GOP. But after things said about his candidacy, the billionaire businessman said there are elements of the party he does not want under his tent.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Tuesday night called Trump the "presumptive" nominee, after Sen. Ted Cruz dropped out of the race. Cruz threw in the towel after it became clear Trump would easily win the Indiana primary.
In a phone interview with NBC's "TODAY" show, Trump said Wednesday he spoke with Priebus and got assurances the party was behind him.
Trump also said he was surprised Cruz dropped out of the race. But in the Texas senator's case, he said, it would be nice if Cruz was eventually able to look past the tough campaign talk and support Trump's bid.
