Kasich Hits Trump Again on Religious Database

Ohio Gov. John Kasich released an ad Monday assailing front-running rival Donald Trump's "flip-flops" on the surveillance and registry of Syrian refugees and Muslims.

In the ad, titled "Trump's Federal Government Religious Database," posted on Kasich's You Tube channel, clips of Trump's remarks to an NBC reporter, in which he "absolutely" would support a database on Muslims, are juxtaposed over his denial of the remarks, and then re-assertion of his support for a database for Muslim refugees "coming into the country" because "we have no idea who they are." 

Commentary with the video states, "Donald Trump does...does not...and does want a federal government religious database. #FlipFlopTrump

"Enough is enough. Americans need real leadership. Join our team today."

The ad comes a day after Kasich conceded he'd been a "virtual war" with Trump over the issue.

"Chuck, as you know I've been in a virtual war with Donald Trump over these things," Kasich told "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd on Sunday. 

"I flat out condemn the idea that we were going to have Muslims register. I mean, I can't help it that maybe he didn't have a camera out there, but the fact is I condemned it soon as it came out of his mouth, that's not acceptable."

He also dismissed as "nonsense" that America would close some mosques as Trump suggested last week in the aftermath of the murder of 130 people in Paris by ISIS.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, a super-political action committee supporting Kasich — known as New Day for America — is claiming at least 10 donors have funneled money to the organization to finance commercials in New Hampshire that are critical of Trump. 

"A majority of the donors are actually behind a different candidate, but they are supporting our effort to stop Trump," said Matt David, chief strategist of New Day for America, saying the super-PAC already has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. "The interest is two-fold: Stop Trump, and nominate someone with experience who can actually beat Hillary Clinton in the general election."

On Sunday, Kasich — lagging in national polls — blasted both Trump and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson for lacking governmental experience.

"Are these people for real? I don't think do," Kasich said on "Meet the Press."
