Trump, Ryan cite productive first meeting
WASHINGTON - Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan say they had a productive meeting and see a great chance to unite the Republican Party and win the presidential election in November.
The presumptive GOP nominee and the party's top elected official said in a statement after their meeting on party headquarters on Capitol Hill that they are "totally committed to working together" to achieve that goal.
They say they were "honest about our few differences" but also recognize "many important areas of common ground."
More discussions are promised, but this first one was described as "a very positive step toward unification."
Ryan has yet to come out in support of Trump. But the two say it's critical for Republicans to united around "our shared principles, advance a conservative agenda and do all we can to win this fall."
