WASHINGTON (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich says the presidential election is “almost surreal” and stranger than fiction.

He says if the story of the election were pitched in Hollywood, it would be rejected as too unbelievable.

The former Republican presidential candidate made the comments at the White House Friday. Kasich met with President Barack Obama and other backers of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

Kasich tried to resist commenting on campaign and his party’s nominee. But shortly before he spoke, Republican Donald Trump announced he does accept that Obama was born in the United States, after years of questioning that fact.

Kasich joked that Bruce Springsteen has to be happy by the news, “because ‘Born in the USA’ is probably going to sell a lot more albums.”
