It's never been so well united." But Trump's White House campaign was in turmoil on Wednesday, with a senior Republican Party official furious over his criticism of a dead soldier's family and his refusal to back the re-election campaign of House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan. Trump hit back on Tuesday at critics in the Republican leadership who have taken him to task for his insistent public dispute with the parents of the soldier, a Muslim U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war. In a revolt against the party, he denied both House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain support in their re-election bids. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was furious over the failure to endorse Ryan, who is the most senior elected Republican, and over Trump's feud with the Khan family, two Republican sources said. During the Daytona event, Trump said he doesn't think President Obama likes him too much but said Bernie Sanders supporters do. "You have Bernie Sanders people are going to be voting for Trump- something just came in, they like Trump. They like Trump," the Republican said. Trump, who had never previously run for public office, broke with party orthodoxy as he beat 16 rivals to become the White House nominee for the Nov. 8 election. Ahead of last month's Republican Party Convention, the RNC sought to rally the fractured party behind Trump. Priebus feels burned by Trump's string of self-inflicted wounds and his refusal to observe basic decorum by giving Ryan his support.
