This Never Trump Republican just made a big threat against President Trump
Draining the swamp has made President Trump highly unpopular with the establishment wing of the Republican Party.
Since these “Never Trumpers” failed to stop Trump in 2016, all they have done is sabotage Trump’s agenda.
Now, one Never Trump Republican just made a big threat against President Trump.
The former Governor of Ohio, John Kasich, was among Trump’s most outspoken critics during the 2016 Republican primaries.
Kasich ran as a “moderate” Republican and as the anti-Trump choice in the primary.
Now, he’s considering challenging President Trump in a primary.
He even recently held events in New Hampshire, the nation’s first primary state.
Fox News reports:
While no candidates have officially said they are running for the presidency yet, speculation is that the Democratic field looking to take on Trump in the general election will be deep…
On the Republican-side, the incumbent Trump might face a rare challenge from someone in his own party.
Outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich said on “This Week” on Sunday that he was not ruling out the possibility of taking on Trump.
“We need different leadership, there isn’t a question about it,” Kasich said. “I’m worried about our country in the long term.”
Kasich, a moderate Republican who made a run for the presidency in 2016, added that he did not know when he would make a decision whether or not to run.
“I’m not being coy,” he said. “I’m not doing this for a game, this is really serious for me.”
The mainstream media would love nothing more than to cover a member of Trump’s own party challenging him.
But John Kasich’s chances would be slim.
As his last acts as Governor, Kasich will veto a pro-life bill and strong gun rights bill in Ohio.
These two vetoes are a slap in the face to anyone who thinks of themself as pro-life or cherishes the Second Amendment.
Trump remains highly popular within the Republican Party, so any primary challenge would be a long shot.
But Kasich would no doubt get free publicity from the anti-Trump media and financial backing from never-Trump billionaires like George Soros.
