Trump urges Repub­li­can unity

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

WASH­ING­TON—Bil­lion­aire Don­ald Trump has pledged to unify the frac­tured Repub­li­can Party fol­low­ing a bruis­ing pri­mary sea­son, as he de­clared the bat­tle for the White House starts now against likely Demo­cratic nom­i­nee Hil­lary Clin­ton.

Trump’s path to the GOP pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion is clear af­ter his com­mand­ing vic­tory in In­di­ana’s pri­mary Tues­day pushed re­main­ing chal­lengers Ted Cruz and then Ohio Gov­er­nor John Ka­sich out of the race.

Their ca­pit­u­la­tions brought the cur­tain down on one of the most con­tentious and chaotic nom­i­na­tion bat­tles in gen­er­a­tions, in which Trump pum­melled no fewer than 16 ri­vals into sub­mis­sion.

“Now we’ll unify the party,” Trump, 69, told Fox News. “We’re go­ing to get peo­ple to­gether.” But with un­fa­vor­a­bil­ity rat­ings among the highest of any mod­ern pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, and con­cern within his own party about his tem­per­a­ment, the real es­tate mogul swiftly sought to as­suage con­cerns about how he would gov­ern.—APP
