The Trump administration needs to be able to focus on its legislative message even with the Russia investigation and the host of media leaks in the background, according to Ohio Governor John Kasich.

"You have to be able to chew gum and walk at the same time," Kasich said in an interview with TheStreet, adding that it's probably not possible for the Trump administration to carry on as normal with the slew of media leaks and the Russia investigation in the background. "It's also important to change the message so we can be talking about tax cuts and economic growth - that's a good message."
