Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich is pushing Republican leadership to stand up to US President Donald Trump on tariffs and immigration.

In a segment of an interview with CBS' Face the Nation released on Saturday night, Kasich says he is "shocked" that Republican lawmakers feel "they have to ask permission from the president to do anything".

Kasich urged Republicans in Congress "to do whatever they can do legislatively" to push back against Trump's decisions to impose tariffs on several ally nations and end an Obama-era programme to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children.

Kasich, who lost his GOP presidential bid in 2016, has been weighing in on national issues lately.

That has fuelled speculation he's positioning himself to challenge Trump again in 2020.

Kasich says he is weighing his options.
