I will win even if I fail to unite the party: Trump says

Addressing a gathering at the California Republican Convention on Friday, Donald Trump called for party unity but he emphasized that he could win in the November primary even if he fails to unite the party.

The California Republican Convention, which will run through Sunday, is taking place at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame. Hundreds of protesters assembled outside the hotel and attempted to prevent Trump from attending the event.

There were some incidents of clash between Trump’s supporters and opponents. Nearly half a dozen people were taken into custody. A Code Pink protester named Nancy Mancias was removed from the convention hall after she yelled into a bullhorn that the Republicans should “dump” Trump.

Trump argued that he could win in the November contest if his opponents within the party, such as Jeb Bush, don’t support him in the general.

Speaking on the topic, he said, “Again, ideally, we’re going to be together. I think I will win even if we’re not together. I mean there are some people; I honestly don’t want their endorsement. It’s not going to have any impact … It’s not going to have any impact. But most of the party has to come together.”

The republican presidential frontrunner brushed off some high-profile Republicans like Jeb Bush’s opposition as a minor issue. He stressed that he simply didn’t care about all that.
