Trump Explains Why He's Still Criticizing McCain

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) passed away in August, but President Trump is still sharing his opinion of his old adversary. Here's what he tweeted on Sunday.

Meghan McCain sounded off on Trump's tweet on "The View" on Monday, telling the president he'll never measure up to her dad. She also suggested he's "obsessed" with her dad.

McCain shocked some by indirectly condemning Trump at her father's funeral, noting in her remarks that "America was always great."

Yet, the president continued to criticize McCain Tuesday at the White House. When asked by a reporter why he still attacks McCain months after his death, Trump explained that it has to do, in part, with his vote on Obamacare.

"I'm very unhappy he didn't repeal and replace Obamacare," despite campaigning on it, Trump explained. He's clearly still frustrated that the senator told them "hours before" that he was voting for it, before changing his mind.

There were plenty of "other things" that Trump didn't like about the senator.

"I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be," the president concluded.

Trump infamously began publicly criticizing McCain when he said on the campaign trail in 2015 that the senator was "not a war hero." 

"He’s a war hero because he was captured," Trump said. "I like people who weren’t captured.”
