John Kasich: GOP Will Die if it Keeps Being the Trump Party

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), last seen on the national stage getting trounced by Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, said Wednesday that the GOP will die a slow, agonizing death if it continues to present itself as the party of Trump.

In a CNN discussion about House Republicans and their decision about whether or not to take action against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Kasich said, “I was the chairman of the committee that balanced the federal budget. I was the one that was able to do reform inside the federal government. I did so many things down there that were conservative. And now these guys are off on some — I don’t even know where they are — they’re on some crazy tangent here.”

“That’s the point,” said panelist Dana Bash. “They are the Republican Party now, governor. The House Republicans are very much representative of a very large chunk of the GOP. Until they, you know, unless they do something to say these views are not okay and, yes, they’re speaking out, but take action about it, then talking about conservative fiscal responsibility and all those things, you know, it gets drowned out. Don’t you think?”

“I agree with that, Dana. Here is the thing,” Kasich said. “The Senate Republicans, Mitch McConnell, couldn’t put out a stronger statement. He’s saying that this lady should be disciplined, should lose her committees in the least, and should be isolated. So he’s a pretty big spokesperson.

“This gets back to what’s going on inside the party,” he continued. “Is it a Trump party, not a Trump party? If it stays a Trump party in the long term, it will not be successful. It will begin to die. Frankly, it’s dying already, because a lot of people have left the party. There is a chance for them to get back on their feet, but if they can’t even make a simple decision about this lady and they can’t decide to support Liz Cheney and her vote of consciousness, what does that tell you about those people? Disgraceful.”

Kasich’s political advice – that the party should move away from Trump – is in conflict with reality. Two-thirds of House Republicans voted against certifying the election results on January 6th. Nearly every House Republican voted against impeachment. Nearly every Senate Republican voted that the impeachment trial is unconstitutional on its face. Polls show that 57% of Republicans firmly believe that Trump – and only Trump – should be the 2024 presidential nominee. No matter how you slice it, this is still very much Trump’s party.

If Republicans really want to “begin to die,” they will turn on Trump and his supporters.

  1. You are dead wrong Kasich. The Republican Party is gone if it continues to snub Trump. You clowns have pretty much lost me for ever with this sort a BS!!

    • It is People like, John Kasiche, that has Ruined the Republican Party. Trump is and was and will be the Greatest President Ever. Vote Trump 2024 and Republican Forever.

    • Kasich was telling the world that Candidate Trump had a ZERO chance
      of beconibg the Republican Candidate for President!
      I saw the video again the other day and he claimed he was in a much
      better position to become the Republican Presidential Candidate.
      OBVIOUSLY! He was SOOOOO Wrong as he is now!
      NO ONE CARES WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!!!!

    • I also agree with Papa Bear, because to be a Republican, you MUST be a Conservative like Trump. Kasich is, unfortunately, a RINO.
      Should a third Political Party for Patriots be formed, the Republican Party will suffer, BUT, the Democratic Party will obviously suffer an equal amount of voters. We all have seen large numbers of true Democrats raising concerns about the recent Executive Orders that were Unconstitutional, and feeling that something has to be done. The Mid Term elections will be the opportunity to remove the Socialists that are occupying Office fraudulently as Democrats and Republicans.

  2. The party was almost dead before Trump look who the last two people that ran as a Republican for president before Trump Romney and McCain both rinos and so is Kasich with people like this there is no republican but the rino party and if that’s going to be what it becomes with out Trump I prefer to leave the party after voting republican 48 years

    • right on ERNIE people are tired of kasitch ITCH ,commy romney& adios to the traitor mccain,sorry his family has his legacy

    • He’s too stupid to realize that the democrats are trying to make them turn so people will vote for the opponent. He knows he can’t get on any of the conservative media so he went on communist news network. Trump brought back the Republican Party. Without him they’re dead. They better start realizing it. The sham number 2 impeachment will tell.Cheney is being censored by the GOP in Wyoming so she’s basically finished. This will happen to all 10 representatives and the 5 senators. We’ll see if more will follow. I wish that McConnell was up now instead of last year when he only won because of Trump. But he’s done. They better start realizing people aren’t going back to those who support America last.

  3. KASICH IS A TYPICAL RINO.
    Sadly the GOP are very weak, complacent, and lazy, they let the Democrats steal the presidency without a fight, Ted Cruz caved on the election audit as the media did not want an audit.
    For four solid years the propagandist media trashed POTUS Trump and his family, and the GOP, but the party chose to take the abuse do nothing.
    Why bother voting in the future as Republicans cave to the media and allow voter fraud.
    Wake up GOP, how about doing your job, start with an Antitrust lawsuit against Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.

  4. Agree with all of these comments. PRESIDENT TRUMP DID MORE IN OFFICE THAN ALL OF THE PAST PRESIDENTS COMBINED IN DECADES. HE LOVED OUR COUNTRY, IT SHOWED, UNLIKE SO MANY OF THE CONGRESS AND SENATE WHO USE THEIR POSITIONS TO FILL THEIR POCKETS STARTING WITH THE CURRENT FALSLY ELECTED PRESIDENT ON DOWN.

  5. Another over the hill BUCKEYE!!! ALWAYS BSD MOUTHING SUCCESSFUL FOLKS. YOU DID YOUR TIME RIGHT OR WRONG. MOVE ON OVER TO SLO JOE!!!

  6. The Republican party will continue to gain strength just because jasick is gone . Can’t believe that he was elected to anything . He would rather have America designated than have a great president like Donald Trump ! Sounds like the democratic party . He’s a trader .

  7. Actually, Mr. Kasich: you are the one who will die on the vine as we continue to live in, believe in, and work with TRUMPISM!!! There will be no place in Trumpism nor the Republican Party with President Trump and his 74,000,000 people leading the Republican Party!!! So, sorry!!!

  8. Another Trump hater. Party will for if you listen to this CNN sponsored Democratic bull and sponsored by closet Dems like Romney and Kasich.

  9. 💋 Kissich and Romney came from the same litter.
    Both are 🥜 nuts.They are both republic rats.
    Republicans at election time,Democrats the rest of the time.

  10. Trump IS THE REPUBLICIAN PARTY!! Sounds like Kasich’s is a sore looser. Kasich, WHAT DID YOU DO FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND OHIOIANS?

    You said “Some [Trump supporters] are redeemable”. Guess what? I don’t think ANY Kasich supporters are left to you anymore. YOU DIDN’T STAND UP TO PROTECT UNBORN BABIES!

    You said as reported on Christian News, “I read about this thing they did in Mississippi, where apparently you can deny somebody service because they’re gay,” Kasich stated during a town hall event in New York, which was hosted by CNN. “What the H*ll are we doing in this country?”

    Then…”Kasich had backtracked remarks that some interpreted as suggesting that businesses should have to agree to forms of participation in events that conflict with their religious convictions” .

    Then you said, “[I]f they ask you to participate in something you really don’t like, that’s a whole other issue. Okay? Another issue,” he said during the Fox presidential debate in Detroit on March 3.
    So you sound like flip flop biden!!! With President Trump, when he said he would STAND FOR AMERICAN’S, THAT’S WHAT HE DID!!

    Y’all want to complain and bellyache because Trump is so popular with the American people, but NONE OF YOU will STAND FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AMERICA FIRST LIKE TRUMP! THAT’S WHY NO ONE WANTS OR BELIEVES ANY OF YOU DC TYPES ANYMORE!!

    Something else you said as reported on Christian News, “Why do we have to write a law every time we turn around in this country? Can’t we figure out just how to get along a little bit better and respect one another? I mean that’s where I think we ought to be. Everybody chill out.
    That’s a very adult thought!

    Well, I can answer that question and I’m not a Politian. The Lord says we live in a fallen world! And Satan has worked very hard to corrupt our world. Look around, lying Politian’s, glorified sports players, musicians, actors, strip clubs, drug , alcohol, sex addictions, sex trafficker’s etc. and a general population of people who are corrupt! THAT’S WHY WE HAVE TO WRITE LAWS EVERY TIME WE TURN AROUND, because there’s always someone who wants to push their life style onto people who don’t want it.

    To me it sounds like you’re trying to frighten and pull people apart and discredit Trump so you and your cronies have a chance to get some of Trump’s base. You sound desperate! And I surely DON’T want YOU as my President!

    • Kasich is the same guy who claimed Candidate Trump had NO chance
      of becoming the Republican Candidate for President>
      On a video he claimed he was in better position to become that candidate!
      HE WAS AS WRONG as he is now!!!
      Stop flapping your lips and talking trash!
      Do your job and shut up!!!

  11. This rino is a weak conservative if he can be tagged as one, preferring to backed up and aligned with the Demonkkkrats rather than support the best President this nation had in decades. With This kind of allegiance of these rinos is no wonder the Republican Party is in tatters right now with no backbone at all. We will never regained our position of power with the leadership of these weak players right now.

  12. That’s a laugh you bum John Kasich !
    The republican party was dead with Kasich his Republican party!
    It couldn’t beat Clinton or Obama twice each !

  13. People are definitely leaving the Republican Party; but they’re not leaving Trump. They are leaving the party because of deep state elites like you and Mitch McConnell.

  14. John Kasich needs to be PRIMARIED with the REST of the RINOs and “never Trumpers” in the GOP. He’s a DEMOCRAT in DISGUISE. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and His Allies 2020 – MAGA (WE’RE NOT going away!).

  15. Hey Kasich, you’re a damned neverTRUMP liar and nothing but a dsmned neverTRUMP liar

    ❤💥👍CHRISTrump and all his US TRUMPlican Lawmakers successfully US 2020/2021/2024 Reelected Landslide
    Amen & Amen👍💥❤

  16. Remember that Kasich is a liar. In 2016 he promised to vote for whomever was nominated to run for aa President by the Republican party, then failed to d so when Trump was nominated.

  17. The GOP will die if it distances itself from Trump. Its treatment of this president has been disgraceful for the four years of his term. I will never vote Republican again if the GOP does not change its behavior to this good man who worked his tail off for Americans in spite of the derision of the Republican establishment, some of whom are no doubt part of the Swamp that President Trump was elected to destroy.

    • Agree with you 100%.

      This douche bag is a brain dead traitor. All the RINO traitors in the GOP are done. Those that held the line will survive and will be around for the 2024 revenge tour.

  18. Hey, Kasich…

    Your version of globalist/leftist/socialist politics is the definition of poly ticks: Many blood sucking insects.

  19. Kasich is one pathetic jack as_ hiding inside the GOP elephant skin. He’s an idiot full of jealousy and can’t get over losing to Trump if it had not been Trump it would of been Ted Cruz or Huckabee,

  20. Only a fool attempts to make this about a man when it was always about him standing up to the Marxists that now rule this nation. His make America Great Again rather than lead from behind, where the scenery never changes was precisely why he was elected. He owed nothing to the people who have fostered hate for the past 5 years. He owed nothing to the DC Swamp creatures. His love for this nation and ALL her people was ever at the forefront of his decisions. It is not the Person John K. and the rest of you haters… it is our Constitutional Government that he fought for, the Republic for which all people have enjoyed freedom and liberty. Now to be stolen away by those who hate this nation and seek total control over all through Global Government and every means they can employ. God Save America.. and God Bless America….

  21. What a moron , democrates will kill the G O P . And a jackass like kasick is like a rat jumping ship ! And the only person that can save our patriots , God and country is President Donald Trump ! That’s why demons on the left want him out , permanently ! Democrates are insanely jealous of the Donald , and what he was able to achieve , even when they obstructed his every move , Donald Trump out smarted them .

  22. HEY RINO GET THE “F” OUT, BEFORE YOU’RE TOSSED OUT LIKE THE GARBAGGE THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR PIE HOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. HEY RINO GET THE “F” OUT NOW BEFORE YOU’RE TOSSED OUT LIKE THE GARBAGGE THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR PIE HOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Kasich is still crying the blues. Like 75 million Americans who voted for Trump are going to listen to his music. I hear an organ playing in the background.

  25. Let’s be honest, Mr. Kasich is a miserable bitter man. He couldn’t even be man enough to attend the convention when it was in his own back yard. Like a child that takes his toys and runs home.
    Many conservatives loved Donald J. Trump from the time he came down the escalator others took a little more time. There is no doubt Trump became a movement, he revitalized the republican party. Even those that fought him during the primary became his advocates. Except for very few, Donald Trump did what some considered the impossible, he beat Hillary. He outwitted her schemes, lies and all her criminal maneuvers.
    Having to dodge all the obstacles the democrats tossed his way President Trump accomplished more in 1 term than anyone that came b4 him. President Trump won over his party as he did the American people. He never lost the election indeed it was stolen from him. I truly believe if President Trump isn’t welcomed back in whatever capacity he desires that would be the end of the party. It will be many years b4 we have a Republican president again. John Kasich and his Rino friends don’t want to admit it, but President Trump was an amazing President. We need him back to help us take over the house and Senate.
    The Republicans need to learn how to stick together.
    In the meantime, I would love to see Senators Cruz and Paul figure out away to impeach Harris, Biden, and Pelosi. God Willing!
