Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said Thursday after meeting with GOP senators on Capitol Hill that the GOP has "tremendous unity."

Trump met with the senators at a GOP eating club a few hundred yards away from the U.S. Capitol Building, in Washington, D.C.

"This was a great meeting," the president said afterward. "There's tremendous unity in the Republican party. We want to see borders, we want to see a strong military [and] we want to see money not wasted all over the world. 

It is the first time Trump has met with congressional lawmakers since he was convicted in New York on 34 counts of falsifying business records.

Trump went over concerns of Americans that he plans to continue to address on the campaign trail.

"We don't have success right now," he said. "We have inflation that's killing everybody. We have levels of inflation that nobody has seen before."

He later said that the U.S. doesn't look good on the world stage in terms of foreign policy and that is something that needs to be addressed. 

Trump went on to praise those he met with, calling them "very smart people." Some lawmakers he met with included Senators Mike Lee, R-Utah, Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Rick Scott, R-Fla.

"They want this country to be great again and we're gonna make it great again," he said.
