President Trump ripped into former Republican Gov. John Kasich over his endorsement of Joe Biden and his speech at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.
“He was a loser as a Republican, and he’ll be a loser as a Democrat,” Trump told reporters during a Monday flight on Air Force One.
“Major loser as a Republican. I guess you can quote me on that. John was a loser as a Republican. Never even came close. And as a Democrat, he’ll be an even greater loser.”
“People don’t like him, people don’t trust him, his healthcare in Ohio was a disaster. He hasn’t done too well with Trump. He’s been easy pickings,” the president added.
Kasich ran against President Trump in 2016 for the Republican presidential nomination.
He is a centrist who has been critical of the President throughout his presidency and was the highest-profile Republican set to speak in support of Biden on Monday evening.
On Monday, it was announced that three more Republicans will address the DNC and endorse Joe Biden.
The speakers include former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, former New York Rep. Susan Molinari, and former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman.
In addition to the Republicans, night one of the Democratic National Convention will feature speeches from Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, and former first lady Michelle Obama.
