Donald Trump sent a shot across the bow to conservatives who aren’t on board with his nomination.

“This is called the Republican Party, it’s not called the Conservative Party,” he told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

He said that he is a conservative but he doesn’t feel he needs to unify the Party in order to win.

“I’m going to get millions and millions of votes more than the Republicans would have gotten” without me,” as he suggested he would strip votes from the Democrats.

He also said he was “blindsided” by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s reluctance to back him after the two, he said, had a friendly conversation following his victory in the New York primary.

A representative for Ryan said the phone call never took place, according to the Associated Press.

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said “Ryan disputed the time of the call, not the call itself.” and added “I believe this took place in late March.”

Trump and Ryan are scheduled to meet on Thursday in Washington and the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has a simple message to bring him.

“I’m going to say, ‘Look, this is what the people want,'” he said.
