Donald Trump and John McCain were political rivals until the very end.
McCain opposed Donald Trump’s ‘Make American Great Again’ agenda and withdrew his endorsement during the Presidential campaign.
And what Donald Trump just said about John McCain will leave you speechless.
John McCain was an avatar for the pro-open borders, pro-endless war, pro-international trade deal establishment wing of the GOP.
Donald Trump and McCain had bad blood throughout the entire campaign.
McCain criticized Trump supporters as “crazies” because they opposed amnesty.
Trump responded by saying he did not think McCain was a “hero.”
McCain then withdrew his endorsement of President Trump in the wake of the Access Hollywood tape—a move many thought would sink Trump’s campaign against Hillary Clinton.
And that wasn’t the only action McCain took to sink Trump’s campaign.
David Kramer – one of McCain’s most trusted aides – peddled the fake news Christopher Steele dossier to over ten reporters in a failed effort to frame Trump as a traitor.
And after the election, McCain personally hand delivered a copy of the dirty dossier to disgraced former FBI Director James Comey.
Trump responded on social media:
“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) “last in his class” (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!”
President Trump then quoted former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who had said that spreading the fake news dossier was a “stain” on McCain’s reputation.
Trump also knocked McCain for his “thumbs down” betrayal on the skinny Obamacare repeal bill.
“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!” President Trump tweeted.
McCain’s daughter Meghan fired back on twitter writing:
“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”
During an Oval Office meeting with the Brazilian President, the fake news media asked President Trump about the feud with McCain.
President Trump said he was not a fan of McCain and knocked the late Arizona Senator for his vote against the skinny Obamacare repeal bill.
“I’m very unhappy that he didn’t repeal and replace Obamacare, as you know. He campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years and then he got to a vote and he said thumbs down. And our country would’ve saved a trillion dollars and we would’ve had great healthcare. So he campaigned, he told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace, and then for some reason, I think I understand the reason, he ended up going thumbs up, and frankly, had we even known that, I think we would’ve gotten the vote cause we could’ve gotten somebody else. So I think that’s disgraceful, plus there are other things.”
