Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican presidential candidate, suggested that he wouldn’t immediately revoke President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran if he were to be elected president.
But he would send U.S. ground troops to the Middle East to fight the Islamic State, the radical group known as ISIS or ISIL that has taken control of a huge swath of Syria and Iraq.
Kasich’s comments aired Sunday during an interview on NBC News’ “Meet The Press.” It comes after other Republican presidential aspirants, such as Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, said they’d cancel the deal immediately after assuming office if they were to win the election.
“You know what that is? That’s inexperience. That’s just playing to a crowd,” Kasich said in response to questions about whether he’d tear up the deal upon assuming office.
