Kasich Reluctant To Support ‘Dividing, Name-Calling’ Trump

John Kasich told Fox News on Thursday that it is “hard to say” whether he will eventually endorse presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, The Hill reported.

“I have a completely different message,” the Ohio governor said. “I can’t go for dividing, name-calling, or somebody that doesn’t really represent conservative principles. … We have a different vision, a different value system and a different objective. It’s pretty hard to put that together.”

According to Kasich, Trump has asked for his endorsement. Several other former GOP presidential candidates, including retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, already have announced their support of the billionaire’s White House bid. Kasich, however, continues to criticize Trump for his inflammatory rhetoric and controversial policy proposals. He said it is “absolutely” possible he will never back the businessman.

Four others who sought the nomination, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, also have not lined up behind Trump. The Hill pointed out that last year, all the candidates pledged to the Republican National Committee that they would support the party’s nominee. It is becoming increasingly clear the politicians do not feel bound to honoring the loyalty oath.

On Wednesday night, Trump turned up the pressure on Kasich. He retweeted a supporter’s comment that the governor should “get on board” or quit the Republican Party.
