Donald Trump claims he'll unite the Republican Party, but right now the GOP is very much a political party at war with itself, over Trump.

Both President Bushes say they won't go to the convention. Ditto for Mitt Romney, the last Republican to run for president.

John McCain, the Republican who ran in 2008, says he's worried he won't be re-elected with Trump on the ticket.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, the chairman of the convention, says he's not ready to support Trump.

And Trump responded by saying he's not ready to support Speaker Ryan's agenda.

Joining us this week is Republican Congressman Peter King from Long Island, no fan of Trump's. He backed Jeb Bush and then Marco Rubio.

Just as few people thought Trump would get this far, so too did very few people think that going into the second week of May, Bernie Sanders would still be around. But he is, and he says he's not going anywhere.

Joining us to talk about that are political analysts Doug Schoen and Hank Sheinkopf.
