Trump claims he's the solution to gridlock in Washington

Donald Trump claims he would be a "great unifier" should he be elected the next U.S. president.

The Republican presidential front-runner joined CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday for a wide-ranging interview, during which he discussed the hyperpartisan culture that's consumed Washington in the last decade.

"The level of hatred between Republicans and Democrats is unbelievable," Trump told Tapper. "I've never seen anything like it."

He continued, "In all the years that I've been involved in politics, I have never seen dislike, hatred, whatever you want to call it, at the level I see right now."
