11 Times John Kasich Didn't Hide His True Feelings About Donald Trump
Early voting is right around the corner for the 2016 election. It's a really important year, and no one can stress that enough. But when it comes to the polls, it will be curious to see how people cast their votes for the two least favorable candidates in history — especially those in the Republican camp who've expressed distaste for GOP nominee Donald Trump. One of those people is the Ohio Governor, who suggested he's likely not voting Trump. But, that's not much of a surprise, as these 11 John Kasich tweets about Trump suggest he's been on the Never Trump Train for a long time.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, Kasich explained while he hasn't decided yet what he will do when he enters the voting booth, he'll be sure to fill us all in when the time comes. But he added, "I think my actions have spoken very loudly, louder than even my words." You know, that's definitely true, but Kasich's words have also spoken pretty loudly, too. For instance, a few months back in June 2016 upon Trump officially winning the nomination, Kasich told Fox News, "I know as governor of Ohio, with some people who pound on me, I said I’m not prepared to [support Trump] and he’s going to have to change."
Here are 11 tweets that also show how much Kasich has consistently been unwilling to support The Donald:
Clearly, Kasich has never been interested in supporting Trump, regardless of his own status in the race for the Republican nomination. He even went so far as to make the connection between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, which has been the subject of recent criticism of the Republican nominee. Even though Kasich isn't interested in supporting Trump in the general election, he is also not on Team Hillary.
But no matter what happens come voting day, Kasich is still going to do what he can to get people to the polls. He told CNN, "We're going to go help people get the vote out, obviously. Get Republicans out to vote, period." Ohio is an important swing state in this year's election, but Trump is currently in the lead with 46 percent, ahead of Clinton's 41 percent and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson's 8 percent.
