Former Speaker John Boehner says 'There is no Republican Party ... There's a Trump party'

Former House Speaker John Boehner told a group at a political event in Michigan that the Republican Party is over and is now the party of President Donald Trump.

"There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party,” he said. “The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.”

Boehner was speaking at the Mackinac Policy Conference.

Boehner also said that he, and Trump, didn't think Trump would win the 2016 election.
