Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump met Monday in Washington with congressional Republicans and other conservative leaders, attempting to forge a relationship with party leaders while urging them to “embrace this movement.”

Trump described the meeting as a success and just the “beginning” of such efforts, as he tries to convince a seemingly reluctant GOP establishment to join forces with him.

“We had a really good meeting. It is a beginning, but it was a very good one, with some of the most respected people in Washington,” Trump said after the private discussion with roughly two-dozen Republicans including Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Alabama’s Jeff Sessions, who has already endorsed Trump.

The billionaire businessman sought the meeting as he adds to his delegate count, vowing he will eventually clinch the nomination. Yet he still faces opposition from rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich and plotting by some Republicans to derail his outsider campaign with an alternative candidate.

  • i’ll embrace him as soon as he apologizes to pres g.w. bush for lying about him!!

    • edwin

      Don’t guess you will be embracing him/ Only thing he has ever told the truth about.

  • Abel

    If the RINOs in the GOP don’t get their act together and unite behind a candidate, Hillary will come dancing down the White House lane. The GOP Establishment doesn’t want Trump because he will shut down their golden goose operation. What they can’t seem to see is that if they split the party and allow Hillary, the “Poster Girl for Teflon,” a path to her throne, their golden goose will die anyway.

    There isn’t a nickels worth of difference between the RINO GOP and the DNC Donkey (Dufus) Brigade. RINOs are just democrats that have infiltrated into the GOP with the intent of dividing, then reassembling, the GOP into a wing of the DNC. The Establishment, GOP and DNC, must be removed and replaced by Patriots that are sensitive to the Constitution when promoting the USA back into a Sovereign Nation. Obama and his Qur’an simply doesn’t cut it, nor will Hillary with her Communist/Crooked baggage! Cruz is a good, well qualified person, except for the issue of his birth place and citizenship cloud (not born on USA soil, and to a Mexican citizen father). So it’s Trump in 2016!

    The GOP should put away their petty differences and get behind Trump before they kick an ax-handle into their spokes and knock the wheels off their wagon!

  • dfinch

    The only recognizable names were Jeff Sessons and Tom Cotton. This was not the top folks.

    • Gnowark

      They are all that is needed for a “show,” before the RNC’s true agenda will be manifest. I don’t trust Dems, indys, or Reps [AKA all career politiciansd]. I’m not a professional cynic, I don’t get paid for this.

  • Barry Ingram

    Trump will lead us out of all the shit we’re going thru Obama is a waste of time send him to Syria with his people trump for president to hell with Hillary she should be in prison for her actions no more bushes or clintons she’s to frail and weak TRUMP ALL THE WAY

  • Richard Hennessy

    Republicans should embrace the movement, but Ted Cruz is the proven candidate of the movement. He has shown in the Senate that he will stand up to the Washington establishment, while Trump has only engaged in self promotion.

    • Gene Fuller

      Ted Cruz is embracing the establishment now with mitt Romney. Used to want him as Trumps VP but he is now telling lies about Trump to promote himself. Trump will promote the people

      • Margaret Thomason

        Gene, I most highly agree with you. Every one needs to stop and think about why and how Trump has gotten this far. He is the man that God Almighty has chosen to be our next president. As for his vp, I think that Jeff Sessions will be great for him. Jeff Sessions is from my home state of Alabama and he is well respected here, in Washington in fact all over the world.
        I never did like Ted Cruz, for one thing he is as Obummer knowing that he is not a natural born citizen, but then I guess he thinks if Obummer can get by with it then so can he.
        As for Hell-ary, her day is coming very soon and she will look rather sharp in orange jump suits, don’t you think.
        Bernie the commie, I believe will retire and then hopefully he and his wife will make their home in Russia.
        GO TRUMP GO!!

        • Gene Fuller

          Great reply Margaret and so true

      • Richard Hennessy

        Of course Cruz is embracing the establishment. That’s what a someone who wants to unite the Party and Country does. However, he has shown in the Senate that he won’t cave to the Washington establishment. I don’t trust that Trump, the “King of the Deal”, won’t. He, unlike Cruz, doesn’t seem to have any guiding principles.

        • Gene Fuller

          BS lie, cheat, still to win. He is done. Bye, bye. Trump wins

  • Webb

    Trump meets with GOP lawmakers in DC, urges party to ‘embrace’ him…
    While Obama meets with Castro in Cuba, asking them to embrace him…
    Obama makes deals with Iran and now wants to deal with Cuba, which will never change their ways toward their own people…Much less The USA!!

    • Kathy Sessler

      Did you see how “upset” Raul Castro got when he was asked about the “political prisoners”, and his People are being treated?

      • Webb

        Yes.
        I believe he wanted the reporter to show him the list of political prisoners…
        It will not change anything in Cuba…Obama has a screw loose!

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          a screw loose?? no he lost it, that screw fell out some time ago.

          • Margaret Thomason

            I would have to say that Obummer lost more than 1 screw, he lost all the screws with the nuts and bolts as well

          • Gary Smith

            AMEN

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            agreed

        • Franie

          No, he’s just the enemy within!

    • Franie

      Makes you wonder why Obama cavorts with the enemy now, hmm?

      • garyrmck

        Second term. He feels free to reveal himself now.

  • Kathy Sessler

    To all,
    I wish people would quit calling the “Left Wing Liberal Extremists” who are in power, (ie; Congresspersons, Senators etc.), stupid. Their NOT. They are very intelligent. They know exactly what their doing! They only want a NWO or a “combination of Canada, U.S. and Mexico!”
    They want to be the most powerful people on this side of the globe. Their methods to this is to destroy our “Constitutional Republic!” It has to be done. They cannot survive with way things are now.
    As far as the “Sheep” who follow their ways. They have been brainwashed over decades of misinformation and outright lies. Yet, at the same time, there are those, posing as leaders of fast rising organizations, (BLM, Moveon.org, etc), who actually believe they will be given a piece of the pie! Boy, ARE THEY WRONG! The upper crust, or 1%, doesn’t care one iota about any of these organizations, or the people who run them! All they care about is the “Power of the God Almighty Dollar!”
    Remember this old saying;
    “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely!”

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      You are right, but the left-wit masses don’t see that, they don’t get it, they don’t understand it, so in one respect that group is stupid, their leaders as you said, know exactly what they are doing.
      On a smaller and more recent example, we only need to look at Cuba, and the Castro Family. This family was wealthy, and had influence and for all intent and purpose it still is, and does.
      Fidel, and Raoul learned well from their father, who was a plantation owner, and a successful business man, slightly corrupt in his own way. The Batista Government had become so corrupt, so self-centered that the people were pushed beyond their breaking point, all they needed was a leader, opportunity came knocking, and then Fidel took the stage. He was able to advance because due to government corruption, and other negatives Batista didn’t have the backing that he needed to put down the festering revolution, that eventually became full blown. Castro’s aim was to turn Cuba into his own private plantation, which is essentially what he did. He really didn’t give a damn about the pee-ons, if he did then he would not have imprisoned, or executed all those people who could have helped rebuild Cuba into something good. Instead he took total control, then ran his plantation, Cuba, with an iron fist, and the left-wits lapped it up, and took the scarps that he threw them.
      Sound at all just a little bit similar. The Castro Family runs Cuba, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, children, and grand children. Any and all opposition, is quickly eliminated.
      Any-one who thinks that it can not happen here, had best think again. Brush up on “Haves and Have Not’s” the disenfranchised, and corruption exposed. We are in a revolution right now, that is why Trump is where he is. The differences between Trump and Commie Bernie, and the Hilda-Beast are self-evident. The difference between Trump and a large number of politicians is that they, the politicians want to keep their gravy train, their power, and their agenda that crosses both party lines. Trump wants to end this, he wants to clean house.
      Conservatives, need to wake-up to the fact, that conservatism is going to have to bend a bit to end this trend, to preserve the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and the sovereignty of this nation. This is not about who can quote scripture, who goes to church more often. It is about the country. It is about us. If we play the same old games, then we can expect more Hilda-Beasts, and more Commie Bernie’s.

      Why do you embarrass America this way?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

  • garyrmck

    It never ceases to amaze me that Jews still remain Democrats after the way the scum in the White House has treated Israel for the last 7 years. Hillary Clinton played a big part in that. For a supposedly intelligent race, they are pretty damned stupid. They are pseudo-intellectuals who embrace liberalism because they feel that liberalism mirrors intellectual status. Nothing could be more inaccurate. Liberalism signifies stupidity at it’s most basic level. America’s Jewish population needs to wake up and smell the coffee. They need to stop obsessing over money, and get back to their religious roots. As a Christian, it disturbs me to see all of the anti-semitism that this behavior provokes.

    • Surly Curmudgen

      The political left in this nation have reversed the definitions of two words, liberal and conservative. The left throughout our history have been the conservatives and the Republicans from 1853 to the present have been the liberals. There will be those vociferously denying this so stop and think, recall the actions of the two parties and be surprised.

      • Gnowark

        I might agree, except the 1853 to current desire of the people to return to founding principles (constitutionally limited Federal government, fiscal restraint, & free-market [cf government-controlled] economy) and “progressive’s” desire to hold onto power regardless of Constitution. Please Notice, I am speaking of the people vs. the Republicans AND the Democrats AND Independents collectively known as progressives, since all parties want to increase the size of government and its insipid “distinctions” w/ apologies to those few Constitution-leaning rarities. I understand your point, but I see little difference currently.

      • Franie

        Don’t think so. Sorry.

    • Constitutionalist

      “They need to stop obsessing over money, and get back to their religious roots.” Eh hem…Contrary to popular myths, Jews do NOT “obsess about money”. I believe the reason why so many Jews support the Liberal Left is that they have inbibed too much of the LIberal kool-aid and truly believe that Republicans are the racists and Democrats are the “tolerant” party. They have blinders on and are, for some reason, unable to see the truth. They are blind to the history of the Liberal Left and how the Left were the ones who supported slavery. They believe the leftist media and the leftist brainwashing has been particularly successful among the Jewish population. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Jews have been persecuted for thousands of years and believe they finally have, in the Democrat Party, a champion of the oppressed. They couldn’t be more wrong.

    • AKLady

      Let us know when you are ready to pay for what you want.
      I can’t approve of barrowinf money to give to another country.

    • Susannadanna

      Michael Oren (former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S.) explained that he thinks it’s because of Jewish religious values and teaching about helping the poor. They place a very high value on this, even though they may not subscribe to the rest of the Democrat platform. And conversely, they view Republicans as stingy. (I honestly don’t know.)

      I, too, would give anything if Jews would embrace conservative Republican policies. Perhaps some will, if Donald Trump can cut our bloated government and create a robust economy with MANY more jobs.

      • Franie

        Republicans stingy? Wrong party. The left, the democrats are the stingy ones when it comes to their own money. Republicans donate heavily to charitable organizations while democrats rarely donate any of their money to anything. Look it up.

        • Susannadanna

          I agree with you, Franie! As a conservative and a Republican, I sold my stock inheritance to help fellow graduate students with tuition at our Christian graduate school, and I was grateful to God for the opportunity! (Note however: My family DESPISED me for this, as they are what we typically think of as “Country Club Republicans.”) What I posted ABOVE was MICHAEL OREN’S understanding of his fellow Jews’ opinions, NOT my own. I figured he knew Jewish mindsets better than i did. And remember, it was collectivist, socialist Kibbutzim that jump-started the agriculture and early institutions of Israel, prior to its statehood. Even today, there are high income taxes on Israelis to support their nationalized healthcare system, which is perhaps the most successful of its kind. What I’m saying is that Jews are historically more acclimated to government collective care methods than American conservatives.

      • garyrmck

        Thank you Susanna. You are a smart lady.

    • Franie

      What has this to do with the above article? How about staying on topic.

    • Devasahayam

      “….after the way the scum in the White House has treated Israel for the last 7 years” — and even worse, after the previous three Democrud/Dhimmicrud regimes treated Israel:
      * LBJ — sent USS Liberty to help Egypt enforce a “pax-Egyptiana” and become bully-boy of Muddle East (and LBJ had to coverup lots after this epic-failed)
      * Carter — hate for Israel already evident while he was in WH, and even more so afterwards
      * Clinton — interference in 1998 Israeli election to topple Bibi, who would not have given evil Egyptian POS Arafat the sweetheart-deal Bubba foisted on Ehud Barak.

  • Bill Blackstone

    Donald, Donald, Donald. Do you really believe what their shoveling?

    • PatriotGal

      Bill, he didn’t say he believed them. He said they were working towards their supporting the movement. It takes time to have a deal gel. TRUMP 2016!!!
