Kasich Calls On Congressional Republicans To Stand Up To Trump On Trade And Immigration

Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich is pushing GOP Congressional leadership to stand up to President Trump on tariffs and immigration.

Kasich, a former U.S. House member, made his comments during an interview with CBS on Sunday. 


Kasich urged Congressional Republicans to push back against Trump's decisions to impose tariffs on several ally nations and end the DACA program.  The comments come days after former U.S. House Speaker John Bohner of Ohio said his Republican party is no longer the party he once knew. Kasich, who lost his GOP presidential bid in 2016, has been weighing in on national issues lately, fueling speculation he's positioning himself to challenge Trump again in 2020. Kasich says he is weighing his options.
