Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) on Monday said there’s a “serious disease” affecting U.S. politics.
“There’s a disease now in American politics. It’s a serious disease,” Kasich said while appearing on “MSNBC Live” with Stephanie Ruhle.
“It’s like everybody just is worried about the next elections,” Kasich said. “So the Republicans are like, ‘Well, we can’t deal with DACA, or we can’t deal with the border, or we can’t deal with trade and do anything to say that the president was incorrect on this [because] it might deflate our base.’ ”
Kasich, who ran a failed campaign for president in 2016 and has been mentioned as a potential 2020 candidate, said the same holds true for Democrats.
