Ohio Governor John Kasich isn't getting too worked up about Trump's budget proposals, which calls for $3.6 trillion in spending cuts. 

"It's just a piece of paper with a lot of numbers on it," he said, in an interview with TheStreet. "Now the hard work begins to take a look at the priorities and the assumptions."

Kasich is also the author of the new book Two Paths: America Divided or United
