The Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus and likely presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump announced Tuesday the 2016 Trump Victory leadership team.
RNC said the Trump Victory Committee will provide coordinated support to likely presumptive nominee Donald J. Trump.
Although Trump has managed to attract many Americans with his sensational speeches, most believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts. His speeches and tweets are full of vulgar words such as “stupid,” “goofy,” “crooked,” “liar,” “low life,” “bimbo,” and so on.

While Trump is a presumptive GOP nominee, he has as many opponents in his own party as he has in the rival democratic camp. The Republican house speaker Paul Ryan, for example, has refused to accept Trump as a GOP nominee – at least at this stage.
Of late, Ryan also met Trump to guide him to unify the entire Republican party. But the contents of the meeting have not been fully revealed.
Other GOP top brass including Mitt Romney is also disturbed with Trump and believes that Trump is a demagogue who is trying to exploit the sentiment of Americans.

But Trump believes that with his arrogant and rude style he has succeeded in his attempt to crush all forms of opposition. He is right to an extent. He defeated over a dozen Republican candidates in the primary debates to become the presumptive nominee.
With his authoritarian and vulgar tenor, Trump even crushed the media voices that raised difficult questions for him in debates. Megyn Kelly of Fox News, for example, asked Trump some pertinent questions in the early stages of debates about his misbehaviour toward women and an unscrupulous university that he owned to fleece students.

But when Trump targeted Kelly with his usual abuses, Kelly succumbed – may be under pressure from her employer Fox. Willy-nilly she requested Trump for an interview which Fox showed under the banner “Megyn Kelly Presents” on May 17.
Kelly looked so terrified in the interview that it turned out to be Trump’s answers to Trump’s questions. On Kelly’s part, it was a piece of unethical journalism.
Although Trump often says media is dishonest, he has some very good media friends – such as Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly of Fox News – who support Trump by asking him questions that the presumptive nominee wants to answer. They also subtly criticize Hillary Clinton to influence the voters. But Trump never called them dishonest.

Slowly, it seems, Trump also is trying to woo the top RNC leaders. Recently, the RNC and Donald J. Trump for President entered into joint fundraising agreements (JFAs). The agreements will allow the Donald J. Trump for President campaign to raise funds the national party will use to elect Republicans at all levels this cycle.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has launched a “Stop Trump” campaign against the presumptive GOP nominee, assuming that the final battle to conquer the White House will be between her and Trump.
But RNC says it is determined to win back the White House. “We are proud to have put together an experienced and motivated leadership team which is going to raise the support our nominee will need to win the White House,” said chairman Priebus.
“We still have a lot of hard work ahead of us to defeat Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, and I know this team is committed to raising the additional resources that will make the difference in producing victory this November.”
The Trump Victory Committee has already begun raising support across the country and is currently running an active Chair recruitment effort in all 50 states. Today, May 25th, will mark the first Trump Victory Committee fundraising dinner in Los Angeles.
The leadership of the Trump Victory Committee is as follows:

“It is my great honor to help raise money for the Republican Party to ensure Hillary Clinton is defeated in November and Republican candidates maintain the majority in the House and Senate,” said Trump.
