Trump creates more controversy with congressional GOP meetings

The meeting between the two men was the first since Trump beat Cruz in the in primary. They did not discuss any endorsement at the moment, the senator said.

To be fair, the Times noted that it's "entirely possible that Mr. Trump is playing coy to earn more news coverage".

"Cruz responded he would continue to do everything he can to help ensure principled constitutionalists on the courts", Frazier said. He was later asked by reporters what he'll include in his convention speech.

On Thursday, Donald Trump strolled into the marble halls of the United States Congress, a grand emperor with a golden crown, demanding adulation and tribute from the Republicans.

Flake then reportedly went on to tell Trump that while he'd like to support him and certainly is "not part of the Never Trump movement", he finds that Trump's disparaging comments make it awfully hard to endorse the presumptive GOP nominee. Flake, who has slammed Trump for his positions on immigration and his racially charged criticism of a Latino judge, reminded Trump that he is not up for re-election until 2018, according to two sources familiar with what occurred.

Cruz and Trump ended their rivalry in late May on a particularly bitter note, with Trumpimplying that Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, was allegedly involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching an all-out attack against House Republicans with a seven-figure national ad buy.

Ryan, who recently endorsed Trump after weeks of consideration, has been very vocal when he's disagreed with controversial comments or statements from Trump.

But the NY businessman continued to provoke other Republicans, showing little willingness to rein in the contentious statements that have caused heartburn in the party. Cruz to speak at the Republican convention, and Sen.

Donald Trump's private meeting with Senate Republicans Thursday was supposed to mend fences on Capitol Hill, but it ended with a clash between the presumptive GOP nominee and Arizona Sen.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan issued a statement on the same day declaring: "It's clear that our party is committed to defeating Hillary Clinton and Democrats this November".

"His best running mate, by the way, would be Ivanka".

The back-and-forth unfolded as Trump asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to be more supportive of his candidacy and encouraged GOP senators to unite behind him, warning of negative consequences of a divided party. "I really do. I just can't support him given the things that he's said".

Trump will run against Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and senator from NY.

Rep. Luke Messer, R-Ind., director of the House Republican Policy Committee, said he was impressed by the version of Trump he saw in person, versus his stage persona.
