Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) criticized President Trump’s use of Twitter on Saturday, saying his tweets are “unacceptable.”

“We’ve seen this for quite a while. You know, it’s unfortunate and people are now begging the president not to do this, and you know you got to stop doing it,” Kasich told ABC’s Martha Raddatz.

The governor’s comments come as the president faces backlash over his recent Twitter attack on MSNBC host Mika Brzezinksi, whom he called “crazy” and “low I.Q.,” and said she was bleeding from a facelift during a New Year's Eve visit at Mar-a-Lago.

 

 

“We’ll have to see what happens. It’s one of the few things that I think has brought Republicans and Democrats together,” Kasich said, referencing the bipartisan group of lawmakers that have spoken out against tweets, including House Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanFive takeaways from McCabe’s allegations against Trump The Hill's 12:30 Report: Sanders set to shake up 2020 race McCabe: No one in 'Gang of Eight' objected to FBI probe into Trump MORE (R-Wis.) and Sen.

“We spend so much time fighting and then they’re all aghast, and so it’s just not the way we ought to be. The coarseness is not acceptable,” he continued.

Trump ripped the news media on Saturday, tweeting the media was trying to convince Republicans to get him to stop using social media.

The president then tweeted his use of Twitter was "modern presidential."
