Conservative host Rush Limbaugh rejected calls for President-Elect Donald Trump and the Republican Party to work with Democrats.

"The time to unify is after we have forced them to surrender, just like we did the Japanese in World War II," Limbaugh said during his radio show. "But the days of unifying with the losers because they're mad and we don't want the media saying mean things about us, they lost."

The host said Democrats do not want unity: "It's a trap; it's a sucker play, and what makes me nervous is that we have Republicans who want to fall into that trap."

The substance of what Democrats believe was "repudiated" by the election results, Limbaugh said.

"It was a bloodbath," he added, saying "Six million fewer Democrats showed up to vote for a person who thought she was going to be coronated."

Limbaugh said when calls for unity come about, Republicans have to be the ones to do it.

"They never have to change a damn thing about themselves, even and especially when they lose," he said.

Partisan politics as the governing system will always cause disunity, the host said: "As long as you have partisan people on both sides, you're going to have partisan divides.”

Obamacare is the top issue that divides the parties, Limbaugh said, and unity might happen if Democrats "help us get rid of it and put something in its place."

According to Limbaugh, the Democratic Party has been crumbling since 2010 midterm elections, in which he said they lost 900 seats across Congress, governorships, and mayors. Now, with Clinton's defeat, they have no one in a leadership position waiting in the wings, he said.

While unity with Democrats might be out of reach, Republicans should be able to work together for the first time since 2007, according to The Boston Globe.
