This Sunday, John Kasich revealed that if they cannot fix the GOP, he will not be offering his support to it and will eventually leave the party.
Details reveal that the Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich, used his opportunity during his airtime on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, that there is a chance he could no longer be supporting the Republican Party. During his interview with anchor Jake Tapper, Kasich said, “If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the party. Period. That’s the end of it.”
When faced with the question what his statement meant for his future in the GOP, Kasich revealed that he was committed to the party, and intended to win it over from the surging nationalist wing, saying, “I want this party to be straightened out.”
Kasich also pointed out his dissatisfaction with both parties, and made a reference to the strength of independent political identities, adding that both parties needed to grapple with ideological currents pulling them away from the center, saying that he had no idea “what the Democrats are for.”
“What I’m trying to do is struggle for the soul of the Republican Party the way that I see it,” Kasich said. “And I have a right to define it, but I’m not going to support people who are dividers,” he added, in what seemed to be a reference against the Trump administration according to many.
