Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump described his meeting Thursday with GOP national officials as “terrific” with the focus being on party “unity.”

He made his remarks to Fox News host Eric Bolling, who was filling in for Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

“I think they wanted to really discuss unity, and I like discussing unity, too,” Trump said. “Theoretically, my whole life … it’s been about unity. I get along with people, I get along with them very well.”

The meeting came a few days after Trump said he could no longer support the eventual GOP presidential nominee, and with that in mind, Bolling wondered who had suggested they get together.

“I think it was probably mutually set up,” he said.

Bolling mentioned that the RNC rule requiring a candidate to accumulate 1,237 delegates in order to avoid a contested convention is a temporary rule, and he wondered if Trump had fears that the party may change that to a higher number.

“Even if you get to 1,237, or 1,240, they can say, you know, instead of a majority, this riled committee says it’s going to be a super-majority and you’re going to need 1,600,” Bolling noted.

“No, that won’t happen,” Trump said. “I don’t think anybody would even think about playing around with that.”
