With Ohio’s Republican presidential primary just days away, Donald Trump is taking aim at the state’s governor, rival GOP presidential candidate John Kasich, in a new attack video.

The 30-second ad is notable in that Trump and Kasich have been relatively friendly throughout the primary. Trump posted the video, ticking off a number of critical things about Kasich, on his social media accounts on Friday.

“After John Kasich helped Wall Street predator Lehman Brothers destroy the world economy, he decided to run for governor of Ohio,” the narrator of the Trump ad says. “John Kasich has been an absentee governor, spending most of his time everywhere but Ohio. Especially Michigan, the latest disaster in his failing presidential bid. Kasich gave Ohio Obamacare and increased our budget more than any other governor in the U.S.”

It concludes: “We don’t need him in Ohio. And we certainly don’t need him in Washington. John Kasich — just another all talk, no action, politician.”
