A high-ranking GOP leader has told worried business leaders that Donald Trump will not influence the party platform, The Hill reports.
Two sources told the political news website that Ben Key, who serves as executive director of the Republican National Committee, RNC, made the declaration during a closed door meeting on Capitol Hill.
"Ben said that as the presumptive nominee, Trump would have some influence on the platform, but it wouldn't be determinative," one of the sources said.
"And then he added … that the platform would not include some of the more controversial positions that Trump has taken," the source said.
The Hill said the RNC "declined an opportunity to deny or clarify Key's private comments."
