The meeting between Senate Republicans and the party's presumptive presidential nominee will be the first time Trump has met with the group.
 
 
McConnell — normally tightlipped — has leveled increasingly sharp criticism at his party's likely stand-bearer, saying last month that his penchant for name-calling "ought to stop" and that Trump needs to start acting like a serious candidate. 
 
The meeting with Trump comes as a top GOP senator signaled Wednesday that he would pass on being Trump's running mate. 
 
 
“There are people far more suited for being a candidate for vice president, and I think I’m far more suited for other types of things,” Corker told The Washington Post. 
 
McConnell, asked about Trump's potential vice presidential pick, sidestepped, saying he doesn't know whom the businessman will ultimately select.
