Ohio Gov. John Kasich, host of this summer’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland, said he could “absolutely” wind up not endorsing Donald Trump for president before the convention begins on July 18.

Kasich told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday that Trump’s recent comments about the ethnic background of Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who ruled against him in the Trump University case, are “just terrible” and it is a part of the reason he is withholding his support of his onetime presidential rival.
