When moderator Hugh Hewitt asked Trump during the CNN Republican debate if he was "ready to reassure Republicans you will run as a Republican and abide by the decision of Republicans," Trump replied: "I really am, I'll be honest." Trump said he has "gained great respect for the Republican leadership, gained great respect for the many — and I'm even going to say all, in different forms — people on the dais."

After re-dedicating himself to the Republican Party, Trump shared that he feels "very honored to be the frontrunner," and if he is "so fortunate to be chosen" as the nominee, he will do "everything in my power to beat Hillary Clinton."
