John Kasich expressed his congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump via social media on Wednesday. 

The Ohio governor tweeted "The American people have spoken and it’s time to come together. Congratulations President-elect @realDonaldTrump."

Kasich has long expressed his disapproval of Trump. 

The Republican governor declined to endorse or vote for the New York billionaire and boycotted the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. He cast a symbolic write-in presidential vote for Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain, GOP's 2008 nominee. The governor also focused his efforts on helping elect down-ticket GOP candidates.
