Kasich: 'I think political parties are on their way out'

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) said Sunday he doesn't expect political parties will be around for much longer.

"in Ohio today, we're more united," Kasich said during an interview on CBS's "Face The Nation."
 
"You know why? Because I'm not playing that stupid political game. And I think political parties are on their way out, essentially."

Kasich pointed to Sen. Bernie SandersBernie SandersBiden says expanding Medicare to include hearing, dental and vision a 'reach' Schumer endorses democratic socialist India Walton in Buffalo mayor's race On The Money — Sussing out what Sinema wants MORE (I-Vt.), who he said is talking about "reconstructing" the Democratic Party.

"I think people care less about party," Kasich said.

"They want action and things done. But it's not just politicians ... it's where you work and where you live and what you do."

During the interview, Kasich also said he thinks President Trump has done certain things well so far, but has made other decisions he doesn't agree with. Kasich was a Republican candidate for president alongside Trump and wrote in John McCainJohn Sidney McCainMcCain: Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner had 'no goddamn business' attending father's funeral Meghan McCain: 'SNL' parodies made me feel like 'laughing stock of the country' Our military shouldn't be held hostage to 'water politics' MORE on his ballot after dropping out of the race, rather than vote for the GOP nominee. 

"The story about yanking people out of their homes, who have not committed a crime, once they've come into this country, dividing families more, I don't agree with," the Ohio governor said about the Trump administration's immigration and deportation policies. 
 
"I think what he did in Syria was correct," Kasich said. Trump ordered an airstrike there after the Syrian government used chemical weapons that led to civilian casualties.  

"He seems to have toned down some of these things. But look, it's 100 days, John. He's never held public office. He's learning. And there is a big learning curve." 

Trump will hit the 100-day mark of his presidency on Saturday.
