Trump Still Faces GOP Resistance

Make It Count

NEW YORK — Donald Trump pressed ahead with his campaign Thursday…urging supporters in West Virginia to save their energy for November:

Donald Trump/(R) Presidential Candidate
“Save your vote for the general election, OK? Forget this one, the primary is gone.”

Despite being the only candidate left standing on the GOP side…Trump is facing difficulty building support within the party.

Yesterday – House Speaker Paul Ryan became the latest voice refusing to back his candidacy.   
Rep. Paul  Ryan/(R-WI) Speaker of the House:
‘I’m just not ready to do that at this point.//I think what is necessary to make this work, for this to unify, is to actually take up principles and advance them.”

Trump fired back in a statement – saying he’s – ‘not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda.”

He saved his sharpest jabs of the night for likely Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton…branding her family foundation a scam:

“I gave money to the foundation.  I Figured – you know, maybe they’ll use it properly. I didn’t know they were gonna use it to fly around on private jets.”

Outside a rally in California – Clinton was met by protesters weary of her record.

Inside – she urged supporters to help her defeat rival Bernie Sanders and wrap up the Democratic nomination:

“We have to turn out a big vote on June 7th”

Voters in West Virginia and Nebraska weigh in next…when the states hold primary contests Tuesday.
