WASHINGTON (AP) — Virtually assured of the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump says he likely will “go the political route” in choosing a vice presidential running mate.

The real estate mogul says in a broadcast interview Wednesday that he’s “inclined” to prefer a No. 2 person on the ticket “who can help me get legislation passed.” He notes he already has business experience and tells MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” he wouldn’t want to have to resort to presidential executive orders to get things done.

Trump also says he’s planning to accept more political contributions now that he’s the Republican Party’s likely presidential nominee.

He tells ABC’s “Good Morning America,” that he “probably will take small donations,” up to the legal contribution limits but will still contribute to his own campaign. He adds that he doesn’t “want anyone to have big influence over me.”

Trump also says he’s confident he “can unite much of” the Republican Party even though he doesn’t want the support of some Republican critics.
