COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has released a statement in light of the explosions that killed dozens in Brussels, saying he is “sickened by the pictures of carnage, by the injuries and by the loss of life.”
At least 30 people were killed, and hundreds were hurt in the series of explosions at an airport and subway station.
In his statement, Kasich described the explosions and the other acts of terror in Europe as “attacks against our very way of life and against the democratic values upon which our political systems have been built.”

Donald Trump also tweeted about the attacks prior to interviews with media this morning.
Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was. Not anymore, it is from a different world! U.S. must be vigilant and smart!
