Kasich hints he'll leave Republican Party if it isn't 'fixed'

Kasich hints he'll leave Republican Party if it isn't 'fixed'”

"And I have a right to define it, but I'm not going to support people who are dividers or people who - look, I don't want to get into all of the wild accusations that this guy has made".

Kasich told CNN's Jake Tapper he was committed to the party, but wanted it to be "straightened out".

Kasich has been intensely critical of the president and the Republican party since his 2016 presidential campaign ended ignominiously. "I'm anxious about our country and my kids' future".

Despite his criticisms of President Donald Trump, Kasich retains influence in the party because of his popularity in OH and is seen as a standard-bearer for GOP centrists distressed by Trump's rise.

Tapper picked up on this and asked Kasich what he meant by that (i.e. becoming an independent). If our party, if the Republican party, is going to be anti-immigration, if it's not going to be anxious about debt, if it's going to be anti-trade, this is nowhere our party can be. But have I given up?

The governor's comment came in response to a question about how Republicans should react to Alabama politician Roy Moore securing their party's nomination for that state's open Senate seat.

Speaking in an interview with CNN's State of the Union, the former presidential hopeful denied rumors he was looking to become an independent, but criticized the Republican Party over its "anti-immigration and anti-trade" stance.

Kasich opposed multiple Republican healthcare plans, forming working groups with Democratic and Republican governors to propose fixes for parts of the Affordable Care Act.

The president published 18 tweets Saturday pushing back against critics who say his administration has not done enough to aid Puerto Rico. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job".
