Haslam still not prepared to endorse Trump following meeting

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam still isn’t ready to endorse Donald Trump following a New York meeting he helped organize with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
    
Haslam told reporters on Wednesday that he and other governors spoke to Trump about issues important to the states. He says he did not bring up Trump’s statements about Muslims in the wake of the Orlando shootings that left 49 people dead.
    
Other governors joining Haslam at the meeting were Phil Bryant of Mississippi, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, Doug Ducey of Arizona and Chris Christie of New Jersey.
    
Haslam said it’s "no secret" that Trump has made comments that he doesn’t agree with but wouldn’t say whether the meeting had allayed his concerns about Trump’s candidacy.
