Kasich Campaign Press Release - NYT: Kasich Criticizes Trump's Foreign Policy

March 30, 2016

The New York Times

Gov. John Kasich ridiculed Donald J. Trump's knowledge of foreign policy on Tuesday, offering unusually acidic words in the wake of last week's terrorist attacks in Brussels.

Expanding on his contention that neither Mr. Trump nor Senator Ted Cruz of Texas can win in November, Mr. Kasich also warned that the Republican presidential nominee could make it harder for the party to win House and Senate races...

...Campaigning in Wisconsin this week ahead of the primary next Tuesday, Mr. Kasich, of Ohio, has taken aim at Mr. Trump's call to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the country, as well as Mr. Cruz's support for patrolling Muslim neighborhoods, arguing that both ideas were foolish.

He was particularly blunt on Tuesday when asked about Mr. Trump's recent comments on foreign policy, including in an interview with The New York Times.

Among other things, Mr. Trump said that he would be open to allowing Japan and South Korea to build their own nuclear arsenals and that he might cut off purchases of oil from Saudi Arabia.

"I think that's like the most ridiculous outlined foreign policy I've ever heard," Mr. Kasich said, laughing, on the Fox News Radio program "Kilmeade and Friends." Mr. Trump, he added, "doesn't understand foreign policy."
