President Trump?

RNC Chair Reince Priebus: I can get the GOP to back Trump

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Reince Priebus said Thursday night that he is certain he can convince his party to rally behind its candidate no matter which GOP contender snags the nomination — even Ted Cruz or Donald Trump.

"One hundred percent. You know the unifying thing about what I have to do is no matter who you're for, everyone can agree that we have to have a national party and infrastructure that has its act together," Priebus told Fox News' Sean Hannity. He added, "Whoever the delegates of our party choose, that's going to be the nominee and our party is gonna be behind that person 110 percent to save this country.”

In December, Priebus seemed to have more of a fighting spirit about opposing a Trump nomination, which is widely regarded as cause for alarm among the party establishment: He met with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republican strategists to discuss the possibility of a brokered convention.
