>> Donald Trump set to meet top Republicans Thursday on Capital Hill, and a difference from the last such group hug two months ago, well, not much.>> Don't worry, we're going to build a wall. Don't worry about it.>> Law makers who thought he'd tone it down after sowing up the nomination still wary, with Trump this week still shooting from the hip.

>> And I hate Saddam Hussein, but he was damn good at killing terrorists.>> Reporter Emily Stevenson says maybe Hill Republicans have given up on hoping he'll change.>> I think at this point, we can safely say that Trump does not want to seem different, he does not want to change his approach to campaigning.

He's more interesting than other candidates, and that's why people like him, and he's not going to stop saying whatever he wants to say.>> Instead, lawmakers now looking to Trump's VP pick expected soon, hoping it's somebody they can deal with.>> Pretty remarkable day.>> In fact, Trump auditioning a series of mainstream GOP candidates this week, including Senator Bob Corker, who abruptly dropped out of the hunt Wednesday, Indiana Governor Mike Pence and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie also still in the mix.
