what i heard from donald trump today. i do believe that we are now planting the seeds to get ourselves unified to bridge the gaps and differences. >> reporter: trump posted their joint statement, saying while honest about our few differences, we recognize there are many important areas of common ground. party chair reince priebus ran the meeting. >> it was great. it was a positive step towards unification. >> reporter: but the party is still divided. >> many members are having a hard time rallying around the presumptive nominee. it is a tough spot. >> reporter: he met to meet texas senator, tweeting out this shot he held private meetings, financing the fall campaign is an issue. picking a running mate. a few hours after he came, trump was gone from washington. with so far saying nothing on camera, leaving the media spotlight on speaker paul ryan, which in the world of donald trump, could be a sign of respect. live from republican party headquarten
steve handlesman, news 4. "meet the press" have a closer look at three questions coming out of today's meeting. chris lawrence continues our coverage, chris. >> sources pretty wired into the matter tells nbc news donald trump knew what he had to do to smooth things over and came into the meeting without his usual swagger. but that brings us to our first question. will ryan endorse him. the short answer, not today. although the speaker was open to the fact and en do you remember rang encouraged by what he heard. will ryan stay on as the gop clear man in july. too early to tell. if he doesn't endorse trump soon, he'll likely be replaced. even ryan admits the presumptive nominee is free to pick someone else. question three. is ryan making a play beyond november. there are a lot of theories why he hasn't been as
colleagues, and that's one of them. if republicans lose in november, ryan will be picking up the pieces of what is already a fractured coalition. if you play that out, he could be well positioned for a presidential run of his own in 2020. either way, ryan's current stance buys time for other colleagues who are uneasy about trump, as they try to figure out how to handle what "the new york times" calls the political equivalent of a live grenade. >> chris, thank you. joining us now anchor lester holt, good evening, lester. >> good to back back in d.c. >> you've been covering all the ups and down we've never seen a presidential campaign like this one. how is this one different than others you've covered? >> i say chris just told us that you've got the presumptive nominee, come to washington and sit down with the speaker of the house to get his blessing, and still doesn't come away with it, that defines we're at in this campaign. you
democratic side, you've got, you know, hillary clinton, who by all accounts seem destined to get the nomination on the delegate side, but she is still waging a primary campaign. nothing like it. >> we know donald trump, the candidate. we know a little bit about him, at least we think we do. but now he is the presumptive nominee. already calls for him to release his tax returns and all of that. can we expect every single minute of his life to be under intense scrutiny looking for something? >> i think yes, but you know, dan quayle was on, former vice-president on the "today" show this morning, and the question came up, will he have to release his returns, and i think his answer was something like he doesn't have to. he is somehow in a different category. i think he is going to be under pressure and the longer that we don't see them, you know, what you don't know is what you sometimes your imagination will take you to many places, whether it will hurt him, though, it is hard to think it will, given how many things he has s
wouldn't have. >> the man said at one point, didn't he, i can stand in the middle of times square and shoot somebody, that's still my people. >> he said it, i didn't. >> and now, we look back at a lot of things that he said before he was the presidential candidate. being seen in a totally new light. >> in a new light, but i think right now, despite all of the things he said, he really would like some party unity. we have in the report coming here on nightly news tonight, we have insight about the meeting today with ryan and other party leaders, suggesting he was a bit conciliatory, and he came to listen. so maybe a different trump behind closed doors today. knowing that he needs to get some of this behind him in the party on board. >> we'll see you in a few minutes on nightly news. >> we invite you to stay tuned, following after this broadcast. thanks, lester. now to a developing story involving metro and more

because federal inspectors have called for urgent immediate repairs in the section of track. meanwhile, today, for the first time, we heard from metro's safety officer, patrick lavin, he spent more than 30 years in the new york transit arena. >> when i started the job in 1983, we were in such a state of d disrepair, we were derailing a main line train every 28 darys. can imagine what it would take to turn that system around. >> reporter: and metro's problems are not insurmountable, meanwhile, will he be looking for strap changes. >> the perception is that you should get rid of the employees because look at the state of the system. however, you need to get beyond that, because if you're not getting -- giving your employees the chance to have track access, to get on the track, and make those repairs, then is it really that employee's faults? >> reporter: he believes changing the hours and track plan to unlock huge
