Former Republican Governor John Kasich appeared on CNN on Thursday to talk about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He decided to stand up for the health care professionals who are facing difficult challenges.
“We don’t have the testing, we don’t have the equipment that these people need,” Kasich said. “When they go into a hospital room, when they go in to perform their duties, they don’t know if they’re going to be properly equipped.”
Later on, CNN’s Jim Sciutto asked Kasich for his opinion on Trump’s attack on governors who are “asking for too much” during this pandemic.
“Where is this ‘coming together’ that everybody’s been calling for?” Sciutto asked.
“It’s inappropriate, Jim, you can’t do that,” Kasich responded. “And the fact of the matter is, if I were president, I would have the Bezoses and the Walmart executives — I would set them free. I would also tell the bureaucrats, stop checking all the boxes … and, in fact, the president needs to let his cabinet know, get your people doing their job and bring the best people in — the people that do this all the time.”
“We need to fix it, and it has to come from the top,” he added. “And none of this attacking governors — they have a legitimate complaint. Answer them!”
