Trump campaign denounces ‘dumb’ Kasich
It’s not just that Reagan’s “11th Commandment” (don’t attack fellow GOPers) is dead; the Trump phenomenon has kicked a full-scale Republican Civil War into high gear.
Addressing reporters at a breakfast on Monday, Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s de facto campaign manager, accused Mr. Kasich of acting “petulant” for refusing to support Mr. Trump following the governor’s defeat in the Republicans’ presidential nominating process.
