John Kasich said on Tuesday’s “The View” that he’s “going to root” for Donald Trump, despite disagreeing with many of the president’s actions. Check out the video below.

Kasich unsuccessfully ran against Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. The Ohio governor then declined to endorse his rival in the general election, and hasn’t been shy about criticizing him during these first 100 days in office. On the ABC talk show, however, he offered measured support for the commander-in-chief.

“I can look at some of the good things he does, and I can criticize the bad, but I want to give him a chance. I’m going to root for the pilot of the airplane I’m on. I’m going to root for the president of the United States regardless of whatever party he or she is a member of,” Kaisch told the panelists, suggesting, “We can resist, but we don’t have to hate… Maybe he is starting to get his sea legs.”

That prompted a skeptical Whoopi Goldberg to say, “I love you for your optimism.” Responded Kasich, “What am I supposed to do, give up?” On the contrary, he wants to work with Trump when possible on common causes, and recently met with the president for a “long time.” The politician insisted, “He was very, very nice.”

Kasich’s main message during his appearance was both about Washington and society as a whole. “This problem has been going on for decades now, the fighting, the dysfunction. But we need to start were we live,” he argued, adding, “We cannot do well if we’re tearing each other apart.”

At the start of the chat, Kasich also joked to the co-hosts, “You wouldn’t have as good ratings if I won.” That, of course, was a nod to the program’s ratings rising as they tackle Trump topics day in and day out. Watch the full interview with Kasich below.
