Paul Manafort: John Kasich 'Embarrassing His State'

Posted: Jul 18, 2016 8:20 AM

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has refused to attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, a decision which many have criticized.  Donald Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort weighed in on Monday morning saying that Kasich is part of the past, not part of the Republican future.  

"He's hurting his state and embarrassing his state, frankly," Manafort told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program about Kasich, the last Republican presidential candidate to drop out of the 2016 race. "But most of the Republicans who aren't coming are people who have been part of the past. And people who are part of the future of the Republican Party are, frankly, going to be here participating in the program."

Manafort also said that we would be seeing a different side of Trump.  

"You know who he is, but you only see him out there on the campaign trail and that's a part of him, but that's not all of him," Manafort said. "Not like we're trying to redo Donald Trump, just trying to expand the focus of who he is. You don't want politicians and frankly he's the outsider. You want people who do know."
