Trump calls for unity but continues intra-party attacks

Campaigning in a pair of crucial battleground states, Donald Trump bashed Democrats and Republicans alike Saturday, from Hillary Clinton to former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

First at a convention centre in Florida, and then in an airport hangar outside Pittsburgh, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee tore into fellow Republicans who have been slow to back him, again dashing hopes among some in the party that Trump would solely train his fire on his likely general election foe.

“I’d like to see Republican leadership be very strong, very smart and you got to be cool,” he said in Pittsburgh, saying that Republicans risked losing seats in the House and Senate.

He saved his most vicious broadsides for Romney, who speaking Saturday at a GOP retreat in Utah, said that in a race between Clinton and Trump, “either choice is destructive.”

“Mitt Romney is a sad case. He choked,” Trump said. “You know what a choke artist is? You know a guy who missed a kick, you get rid of him, right? He choked like a dog.”

Trump also revived “Crooked Hillary,” his favourite moniker for Clinton, calling her a “maniac.” He again went after another one of his vocal critics — Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren — calling her “Pocahontas,” a reference to her Native American ancestry.

Toward the end of his speech, supporters broke into a chorus of “Happy Birthday.” Trump turns 70-years old on June 14.
