WASHINGTON – John Kasich spoke about fellow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently, but wouldn’t comment on supporting Trump if he earned the Republican nomination.
“I think he’s very divisive and I do not believe he will last,” Kasich said when asked about supporting Trump in the primary, according to ABC News.
Kasich added that Trump’s recent issues with a New York Times reporter will be a reason he won’t win the nomination. It appeared recently that Trump mocked the NYT reporter during a speech, the reporter has a muscular disorder. Kasich said Trump “absolutely mocked” him.
“Somebody who divides this country, here in the 21st century, who’s calling names of women and Muslims and Hispanics and mocking reporters, and says, ‘I didn’t do it,’ but he did do it, it’s just not going to happen,” said Kasich.
Kasich said someone has to call Trump out on his actions, but refused to comment directly on whether or not he would support Trump.
