New York: Facing dissent within his own party, GOP(Grand Old Party) presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has said that he does not need the Republican unity to win the US elections in November this year.

“I think it would be better if it were unified. And I think there would be something good about it. But I don’t think it actually has to be,” Trump said in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press broadcast programme.

The billionaire leader reflected on uniting the country which is diverse and divided in so many ways.

“This country, which is divided in so many ways, is going to become one beautiful, loving country,” Trump said after winning in Indiana this week.

Meanwhile, Trump’s lack of support within the Republican party, especially from elected officials has come as a striking rebuke to his candidacy, the Guardian reports.

Republican House speaker Paul Ryan has recently said that he couldn’t lend his support to Donald Trump, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee.

“I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now,” he told CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” in an interview.

Also global leaders are already beginning to consider the impact of a Donald Trump presidency, with some analysing what it would mean for relations with the U.S.
