The tide is certainly turning for the Trump campaign.
Throughout the primaries, he saw surging support from voters around the nation. Yet established Republicans were terrified about what he might to do to their status quo.
The GOP leaders in Washington questioned his ability to leader, questioned his style. It seems they didn’t want an outsider to upset their comfy ecosystem.
Despite all this, Trump clinched the GOP nomination, beating 17 entrenched, career politicians.
While there are still some foolish GOP leaders trying to undermine Trump’s momentum, the majority seem to have seen the light.
Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump met with at least 200 House Republicans at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C. on Thursday morning.
Sources report Trump received two standing ovations during the meeting, where he reportedly spoke about tax reform, Obamacare, the Supreme Court, the Second Amendment and dishonesty in the media.
The New Yorker arrived at the meeting with his daughter Ivanka. Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus also attended the meeting. The presumptive nominee reportedly answered questions from lawmakers for roughly 40 minutes.

All signs point to a successful meeting, as leaders in Washington came out in support of what Trump had to say. Perhaps hearing from the man directly won them over. Perhaps spending a little time with these DC insiders placated their egos. Either way, Trump is stitching up the support he needs to the GOP.
