Gov. John Kasich and President Donald Trump

Gov Kasich: President Trump ‘incapable of being a unifier’

Ohio Gov. John Kasich went on CNN Thursday morning criticizing President Donald Trump’s response to the news about bombs and devices being mailed to his critics including Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and others.

“I’ve now become convinced that he is not capable of this. he is not capable of being a unifier,” Kasich said.

“If fact I’ve become convinced that he doesn’t know how to accept personal responsibility and always finds somebody else to blame.”

President Trump has not yet commented on Kasich’s remarks.

At a rally in Wisconsin Wednesday night, Trump decried the threat of political violence and called on the media to end its "hostility" after authorities intercepted bombs sent to CNN and prominent Democrats who have been the targets of some of his sharpest barbs. The scripted message was a dissonant one for the president, who has repeatedly blasted his political opponents as criminals and argued that they will destroy the country if they win control of Congress in the midterms.
