Major Burden is Not on Trump to Mend Relations with Republicans in Congress

Trump won without the full support normally given to a party leader in a presidential election. The Republican party needs to be unified.  As President, he will naturally be the leader of that effort. However, the non-Trump Republicans bear the burden of making peace with the winner they rejected.

Trump’s message last night shows he is approaching this healing with a conciliatory spirit:

“For those who have chosen not to support me in the past – of which there were a few people (crowd laughter), I am reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.” 

The responsibility now rests on the non-supporters to set aside destructive pride and focus on fixing the nation as they have been charged to do so by their constituents.
