Ohio Gov. John Kasich said it was "disappointing" that President Donald Trump "refused" to try and unite a politically divided country during his fiery Arizona rally on Tuesday night.

"We must all unite for a common goal: A stronger America," the Ohio Republican tweeted.

In his rally speech in Phoenix, the president slammed the media, threatened to shut down the government over funding for a promised border wall between the United States and Mexico and called out — without naming them — two Republican senators who've been critical of Trump.

But Trump was more conciliatory in a speech Wednesday at the American Legion's national convention in Nevada, where he called for the nation to heal its political divisions.

"It is time to heal the wounds that divide us and to seek a new unity based on the common values that unite us," he said. "We are one people with one home and one great flag."
