Republican Senator to Publicly Condemn Trump Today, Saying 'the Country Deserves Better'

To lie in state, one needs the approval of Congress.

The president then went on with a laundry list of complaints he's held against McCain - from an ally of the late senator reportedly handing over the so-called Steele dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to his support for American intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Late senator John McCain is honored during the 2018 Iran Uprising Summit in Manhattan, New York, U.S., September 22, 2018. Trump rejected his staff's suggestions and refused to follow a tradition of leaving the flag at half-staff until the senator was laid to rest. In an interview with Georgia Public Broadcasting on Wednesday, he called Trump's remarks about McCain "deplorable". "There aren't Democratic casualties and Republican casualties on the battlefield, there are American casualties, and we should never reduce the service that people give to this country".

"I just want to lay it on the line, that the country deserves better, the McCain family deserves better, I don't care if he's president of United States, owns all the real estate in NY, or is building the greatest immigration system in the world", Senator Johnny Isakson, from Georgia, said in an interview. "I don't care if he's president of United States, owns all the real estate in NY, or is building the greatest immigration system in the world", Isakson told the site.

President Donald Trump targetted the late Vietnam veteran, who passed away in August from brain cancer, about the Steele dossier over the weekend, as IJR Blue reported. McCain was the deciding vote in blocking efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act two years ago. I don't think I have to answer that question, but the press keeps - 'What do you think of McCain?

"I've really probably never will, but there's certain reasons for it and I will tell you, and I do this to save a little time with the press later on, John McCain received a fake and phony dossier, did you hear about the dossier?" John McCain saying he was "never a fan" of him.

"We're in a war that McCain pushed for so hard", Trump said.

Donald Trump recently attacked late Sen.

Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen.

A woman called John McCain "traitorous" and celebrated his death.

When I saw the text for this video I thought to myself "surely our president can not be upset that a dead man did not thank him for the funeral he put on for the dead man", but alas, here we are-with that unreality well within our realm of possibility.

"A lot of people are asking me, because they love me, about a man named John McCain", the president claimed today.

Martha McSally (R) offered praise for the late Sen.

Senator Lindsey Graham, one of McCain's closest friends who has also emerged as a vocal ally of Trump's, said his comments "hurt him more than they hurt the legacy of Senator McCain". Other than a tweet from Mitt Romney, the GOP has stayed largely silent as Trump insults a lion of their party. She continued, "I will say attacking someone who isn't here is a freaky low".

The focus has since narrowed to Trump. "Every single time they take a swing at us: ABC News, 11 o'clock on the east coast every day, guys".
