Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Saturday that he doesn’t think he needs to unite the GOP in order to win the general election this November.

{mosads}“Does the party have to be together, does it have to be unified?” he said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “I’m very different from anybody who’s perhaps ever run for office. I actually don’t think so.

“I think it would be better if it were unified. I think there would be something good about it, but I don’t actually think it has to be unified,” he said.

The presumptive GOP nominee said he can win without the backing of the full party by drawing Democratic voters, specifically supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“I have to stay true to my principles also. And I’m a conservative, but don’t forget: This is called the ‘Republican Party,’ not the ‘conservative party,’ ” Trump said.
