Trump waves to onlookers and reporters as he departs through a back door after meetings at Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters in WashingtonBy Steve Holland and John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump made a surprise closed-door visit to the Republican National Committee on Thursday after a tumultuous two days on the campaign trail that included a reversal of his pledge to support the party's nominee. Trump, who is also struggling to contain the fallout from his Wednesday comment that women who have abortions should be punished if the procedure is outlawed, said afterward he had a "nice meeting" to talk about party unity with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "And it will happen!" Priebus said the meeting was scheduled days ago and included a discussion about the process heading into the party's July convention in Cleveland.
