Trump: Millions Love Me And Not John McCain

‘I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be’: Furious Trump continues obsessing over the late senator

Trump also criticized McCain for casting the decisive vote against a measure to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Over the weekend, Trump attacked McCain on Twitter. John McCain, R-Arizona for allegedly sending the Federal Bureau of Investigation the Steele dossier before the election - and working with Democrats to do so.

Trump, during an appearance at the White House alongside Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, continued his posthumous broadside against his former foe, saying that he still found it "disgraceful" that McCain voted against repealing key parts of Obamacare in 2017.

Among the tweets was a claim that McCain had finished "last in his class" at the US Naval Academy. A short time later, in Hanoi, I visited the dank, miserable cell where McCain spent much of his five-plus years in captivity.

Trump first mocked McCain just days after announcing his presidential campaign in June 2015, saying the former Vietnam veteran wasn't a "war hero", but had only been given that distinction "because he was captured". "I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be". McCain wasn't made aware of the dossier until after the election when he passed it on to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier 'is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain, '" Trump tweeted over the weekend, quoting the independent counsel who investigated then-President Bill Clinton.

Earlier, Meghan McCain shared a cartoon on her official Instagram account showing the military medals of her father under the heading "John McCain" side-by-side with drawings of pacifiers under the heading "Donald Trump".

After McCain's death, Trump faced criticism for not releasing a formal White House statement and declining an order to lower US flags on public property until days after the senator's passing.
