Ohio Governor and GOP Presidential candidate John Kasich is under fire from fellow White House hopeful Donald Trump for negative ads Trump says Kasich aired.
Trump says the ads clash with Kasich’s claims of a fully positive campaign. Kasich finished a distant 2nd to Trump in New Hampshire Tuesday.
According to The Hill:
“Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday accused primary rival John Kasich of running negative ads against him while simultaneously attacking his opponents for going negative.
“Well, I like him a lot, I think he’s a nice guy,” Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” of the Ohio governor. “Unfortunately, going to the airport two days ago, I heard a commercial, and the commercial was a little bit negative, and I said, I wonder who did that commercial.”
“It was a negative commercial of me, and it was John Kasich,” he added. “You know, he talked about he’s not going negative, but he did a negative commercial on me, so I didn’t like that.”
Trump, who finished first in the New Hampshire primary to Kasich’s second, said he might have to take “a little bit tougher stance” on Kasich before the South Carolina primary.”
