ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said "Donald Trump is clearly not prepared to be president of the United States," based on Trump's recent comments on abortion and nuclear weapons.

And then has to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to correct all of the mistakes that he made. And I have to tell you that as commander-in-chief and leader of the free world, you don't get do-overs." Republican front-runner Donald Trump's campaign sought on Thursday to contain the fallout from his comments on punishing women for having an abortion, characterizing the flap as a "simple misspeak" as his White House rivals pounced on the controversy.

The comments triggered a flood of rebukes from both sides of the abortion debate, and his campaign tried to address the repercussions.
