Clinton Camp: GOP Won't Unify Behind Trump

Team Clinton doubts GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump will ever have the support of the entire Republican party.

The Democratic presidential front-runner's campaign on Thursday released a new video highlighting a host of GOP officials who've objected to the party's presumptive presidential candidate.

Titled "GOP Unity," the ad ends with the remark: "Good luck with that."

A news release from the campaign also discounted the notion of GOP party unity behind Trump, declaring "the chorus of Republicans and conservative commentators from around the country rejecting his unpredictable, risky and divisive candidacy has grown daily," the Washington Examiner reports

The Clinton campaign effort to highlight a deep rift in the GOP ranks comes the same day Trump had private meetings with House Speaker Paul Ryan — who a week ago publicly snubbed supporting Trump — Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus and leaders of both the House and Senate to try to mend fences damaged by a bruising primary race. 

Team Clinton says unity won't happen.

"Donald Trump has proven himself to be a loose cannon whose hateful language and dangerous policies will do serious harm to working families and put America's security at risk, and Republicans are continuing to acknowledge that a President Trump would be too big a risk," the news release said, the Examiner reports.

The Examiner reports that since Trump was named the presumptive GOP nominee last Tuesday, the Clinton campaign has capitalized on the lack of party support for him — including with emails listing conservative politicians, commentators and pundits who either denounced support for the Republican Party or said they couldn't yet get behind the nominee.

Ryan, however, called his meeting with Trump on Thursday a "positive" first step toward repairing the rift.
