Kasich Slams ‘Path’ Forward Proposed By Trump And Cruz

John Kasich claimed Tuesday that he offers a much different vision for the country than either of his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination.

During a speech at the Women’s Republican Club in New York City, the Ohio governor urged his audience to reject “the path that exploits anger, encourages resentment, turns fear into hatred and divides people.” He was referring to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, according to NBC News.

“This path solves nothing, demeans our history, weakens our country and cheapens each of us,” Kasich said. “It has but one beneficiary and that is to the politician who speaks of it. The other path is the one America has been down before. It is well trod, it is at times steep, but it is solid.”

Without stating his opponents’ names, the governor blasted their plans to ban Muslim immigrants, conduct surveillance at Islamic mosques and neighborhoods, and pulling the United States out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. He also ridiculed “whimsical cuts in ‘fraud, waste and abuse’” the billionaire businessman and Texas senator have proposed.

“I have stood on a stage and watched with amazement as candidates wallowed in the mud, viciously attacked one another, called each other liars and disparaged each other’s character,” Kasich said. “Those who continuously push that type of behavior are not worthy of the office they are seeking.”
