Top Republicans and political allies to Donald Trump are planning an “intervention” with the candidate following several disastrous days of a political firestorm that has encircled the Republican presidential nominee, according to a report Wednesday. 

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) are among those looking to talk with the businessman, NBC News reports
 
{mosads}The group hopes to enlist Trump’s children, who have proven pivotal in advising the businessman’s candidacy, in their effort to get Trump back on track after days of feuding with the parents of a slain U.S. soldier that even his closest political allies, like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, have called inappropriate.
 
Trump insisted in a tweet early Wednesday that there is “great unity” in his campaign despite reports of internal campaign strife following an onslaught of negative attention.
 
The real estate tycoon attacked the soldier’s parents after they spoke out against him at the Democratic National Convention last week, then he caught flak over the weekend for comments about Russian aggression in Europe.
 
Trump told The Washington Post on Tuesday he wasn’t ready to back Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in their primary races, despite them endorsing his candidacy, and he also swiped at Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.).
