Republicans in the House of Representatives are saying that Donald Trump’s meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan isn’t enough.

Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon told the Washington Examiner that the Republicans are looking for a "lengthy back and forth" with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

A source told the Examiner that a meeting between the Republican conference and Trump is likely to happen before the Republican National Convention, and such a meeting is "standard practice."

Salmon told the Examiner that Republicans want "a lengthy back and forth with Trump, not just your typical hour-long meeting."

"There are a lot of people with a lot of questions," Salmon told the Examiner.

It’s likely, the Examiner report said, that Republicans are seeking assurances that Trump will support issues important to conservatives such as abortion and minimum wage.

"Mr. Trump and his people understand if we are going to win, we are going to have to come together on the basis of substance and common commitment to the Republican principles we all believe in," Arizona Rep. Trent Franks told the Examiner.

Some Republicans are coming around to the need to support Trump because they believe he is a better choice for president than Hillary Clinton, but reservations apparently remain.

"As a conservative, I know I can’t trust Donald Trump to do the right thing," Franks said. "But, I know I can deeply trust Hillary Clinton to do the wrong thing every time."

Rep. Steve King, a Republican from Iowa, said he believes Trump must be clear about his stances on Republican issues. "There are a good number of policies that need to be ironed out," King said on "Morning Joe," according to a report in The Hill.

"I’d like to see our party heal together," King said.
