The PAC supporting GOP presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich – who is ranked ninth out of the GOP field – is beefing up attacks against GOP frontrunner Donald Trump with ads airing in Ohio and New Hampshire.

It also hatched a plan to disrupt Trump’s rally in Ohio on Monday night by flying a plane over the event that read, “Ohioans Can’t Trust Trump.”

The Hill reported, “New Day for America, the super-PAC supporting Kasich’s presidential bid that doesn’t coordinate with the campaign, plans to fly a plane around the Columbus Convention Center, the site of Trump’s Monday night rally, that says ‘Ohioans Can’t Trust Trump.’”

“As usual, I’m sure tonight will be really entertaining, but as Mr. Trump prepares for his latest nonsensical rant, Brussels is on lockdown, Paris remains under a state of emergency and cities across America are implementing measures to prevent a terrorist attack on U.S. soil,” New Day spokesperson Connie Wehrkamp stated.

“The times are far too serious to entrust America’s ‘entertainer in chief’ with the grave responsibilities that come with the title of commander in chief. We can’t trust Donald Trump and New Day For America is committed to reminding voters of that between now and the primaries,” Wehrkamp added.

New Day for America PAC recently released a new digital ad against Trump that airs in Ohio and New Hampshire.

The Hill noted, “The ad includes controversial comments from Trump’s campaigns, including when he said that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was not a war hero, referred to African-Americans as “the blacks,” said Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever,” and referred to Mexican immigrants as rapists.”

New Day for America PAC is reportedly spending $2.5 million to increase attacks against Trump since he’s still at the top of the presidential polls.

Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, laughed off the campaign attacks in a previous interview with The Hill, “where he jokingly questioned whether Kasich is still in the presidential race.”
