America's moral decline led to the election of President Donald Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich claims in a new book, Breitbart News is reporting.

Kasich, who opposed Trump during the 2016 Republican primaries, wrote in his new book, "Two Paths: America Divided or United," that Trump's electoral win was aided by groups including the media and dishonest politicians, according to Breitbart.

But he maintained one of the key reasons behind Trump's victory was the spiritual decline in America

"I happen to believe that you can't guide an entire society without a shared religious foundation," Kasich wrote.

"I saw Trump's reckless entreaties as a weakening of our shared American values — even more so, a coarsening of our shared American values … Donald Trump gave the impression of a man who would do or say anything to get attention, even incite a crowd to violence."

Kasich, whose term in Ohio ends in January 2019, has said it is unlikely he will make another bid for political office, Breitbart noted.

However, he has not totally ruled out seeking the presidency.

"But he's trying to keep his name in the mix in case President Trump decides not to run again,  Ryan Williams, a former aide to GOP nominee Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential bid, is reported by The Hill as saying.

"He, like many people, was counting on President Trump to lose in November, expecting to occupy a space in the effort to rebuild the party. But that evaporated the minute Trump won the election."

Kasich also noted in his book Trump "gave millions of disenfranchised voters a voice," Breitbart reported.

"What the voters were telling us in this election was that they were angry, that they were feeling that their lives were out of control, that there was a sense of helplessness and hopelessness in the heartland," Kasich wrote.
