America, May 12: Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan have said they are “totally committed” to party unity in a statement following their meeting.
The two are trying to find common ground after Mr Ryan said he could not endorse the presumptive Republican nominee.
He has said the businessman lacked conservative principles. “We had a great conversation this morning,” the two wrote in a joint statement.
“While we were honest about our few differences, we recognise that there are also many important areas of common ground.”
They said they would be having “additional discussions” but think they can unify the party and win the election.
Despite misgivings about Mr Trump, Republicans are calling for party unity to defeat likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November.
Mr Trump arrived for the meeting at the Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters in Washington amid protesters brandishing placards.
Afterwards, RNC chairman Reince Priebus, who mediated the talks in his office, said it was a success. BBC
