Donald Trump to GOP: 'Be Quiet' or I’ll Lead Alone

The presumptive Republican nominee issued a harsh directive to his party today.

Speaking in the historic Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georgia, Trump appeared to be fed up with leadership of the party he will likely lead into the November election.

"You know, the Republicans, honestly folks, our leaders, our leaders have to get tougher. This is too tough to do it alone. But you know what, I think I’m going to be forced to. I think I am going to be forced to, our leaders have to get a lot tougher,” he began.

He added, icily, "And be quiet. Just please be quiet. Don't talk, please be quiet.”

Trump has had a very tenuous relationship with many other Republicans, strife stemming from many of his more controversial proposals statements, including a plan to temporarily ban refugees and Muslims, and his statement that doubted whether an American judge could be impartial in a lawsuit due to his Mexican heritage.

But Trump remains defiant as ever.

“They have to get tougher. They have get sharper,” he said in Atlanta. "They have to get smarter. We have to have to -- our Republicans -- either stick together or let me just do it by myself. I'll do very well."
