The Republican primary might be fought and won, but that doesn't mean presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is relenting his attack within his own party.

This week, Trump has launched a new round of intra-party attacks on figures old and new alike:
  • South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley for endorsing Marco Rubio
  • Jeb Bush for his energy level
  • Mitt Romney for being a "choker" and walking "like a penguin"
  • New Mexico Gov. Susan Martinez for "not doing the job."
The common denominator between all four — none of them have endorsed Trump yet.

The attacks on Martinez in particular sent many Republicans scrambling to do damage control. They prompted Speaker Paul Ryan — who also has yet to endorse Trump — and Rubio to both defend Martinez while raising doubts about Trump's ability to unify the party, The Washington Post reports. 

Even Newt Gingrich, a staunch supporter of Trump and a potential candidate for vice president, said Trump "went off the deep end" in his attack on Martinez.

On the flip side, it's hard to unite the party when prominent Republicans continue to hold out endorsing their party's presumptive nominee.

"I understand that Paul Ryan is trying to have it both ways," Mark Burns, an evangelical pastor from South Carolina, was quoted by the Post at the Anaheim rally. "Donald Trump is going to unite this party and, come November, we're going to elect a new president by the name of President Donald Trump."
