Former Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) addressed ABC’s “The View” co-host Meghan McCain’s concerns over a potential Biden-Harris administration’s abortion policies by arguing stopping the “division” President Donald Trump was causing is a higher priority on Friday.

McCain said, “Governor, I actually have been looking forward to having you on to ask this question because you know my family. I was raised with a certain set of values and principles, and I was raised conservative. I’ve only gotten more conservative as I’ve gotten older, and I’m almost nine months pregnant.”

She continued, “I hate President Trump, and I think everybody else knows that. But there are some policies on the left, specifically with Kamala Harris right now, having to do with abortion. She co-sponsored a bill doing away with any limits at all, also running on taxpayer funding for abortions. I was surprised at this. You’re pro-life, and I know that. You were pro-life in politics, as am I. It’s a big part of who I am and my platform, and I don’t think taxpayers should be funding abortions for women who are as pregnant as I am right now. How would you push back against a voter like me who’s concerned about things like this in a possible Biden-Kamala administration?”

Kasich said, “I agree with you on your position, Meghan. But look, again, I’m not a person— I disagree with Joe Biden in a number of areas. I don’t agree with him in capital gains taxes, but the issues here are dwarfed, in my opinion, by the fact that he’s a person that can pull us together. So do I think that if he wins, that all of a sudden, all these things are going to happen that are negative? No, I don’t believe that at all because that’s not his character. That is not who he is.”
