John Kasich on Guantanamo

Kasich is strongly opposed to the closing of Guantanamo.

MARTHA MACCALLUM: So let’s go now to Ohio Governor John Kasich who joins us from the campaign trail in Georgia today. Good morning Governor. Good to have you with us today.

JOHN KASICH: Thanks Martha.

MACCALLUM: You bet. So what do you think about this plan the President is expected to roll out in about an hour and a half from this morning?

KASICH: Well I haven’t seen the plan but I don’t favor closing Gitmo. I don’t understand it. These are people, some of whom are the worst of the worst and why would we send them into our country? I just don’t understand it. So look he promised it in the campaign. When my people said this morning he was going to do this I said “why is he doing this?” and they said “campaign promise” so all I can tell you is I profoundly disagree.

MACCALLUM: So if you were to become president this isn’t something you can really put back in the box if people have already been moved to Florence Colorado and a facility most likely in South Carolina to be at the top of the list.
KASICH: Well the question is does the congress have any authority to act in this? I don’t know what the procedure will be but I just don’t support it.
