Gov. Kasich Says Trump Doesn't Appeal To Suburban Women

Bill Clark  CQ-Roll Call Group

Before the rally, the crowd erupted in cheers for U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, who is running for Speaker of the House. The 12th district has a higher percentage of people 25 and older with college degrees than any other district in the state, and Trump's popularity there has waned.

The president traveled to this suburban Columbus district to campaign for Republican Troy Balderson, a state lawmaker locked in a tight special election contest with Democrat Danny O'Connor.

Stephanopoulos also asked about Trump's tweet this weekend taking a swipe at National Basketball Association star and OH native LeBron James, saying it is hard to make "LeBron look smart".

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon". He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do. The statement didn't criticize Trump.

"So, you know", he continued, "I think Donald Trump decides where he wants to go and I think they think they're firing up the base, but I have to tell you, at the same time that he comes in here, I was with some women last night who said, 'Hey, you know what, I'm not voting - and they're Republicans - I'm not voting for the Republicans". Asked by Stephanopoulos whether Trump was "playing the race card", Kasich said, Trump "is a divider" and "the chaos" sparked by the president is why the number of people who belong to the Republican Party has declined.

"Jim Jordan, how great is he?"

Democrats have "a weak candidate because there's no message", he declared.

"Oh excuse me, I nearly forgot I would have been in big trouble, the great Lou Dobbs", Trump added.

Trump brought up another regular target of scorn, calling Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat who has lashed out at the president, "an extremely low IQ person".

In a raucous rally in a sweltering gymnasium north of Columbus, Ohio, Trump pitched for the GOP candidate up in a special election next week and defiantly questioned the idea that, historically, the party that controls the White House suffers in the midterms, declaring "but I say why?"

He also defended his trade policies and, at one point, seemed to suggest that the markets would be up another 40 percent without his tariffs - but said the measures were needed or the nation would eventually have to "pay the piper".

Trump's rally was the third he's held this week ahead of the November midterm elections, following events in Florida and Pennsylvania.
