McCain's Former Jailer in Vietnam Writes Heartfelt Tribute As Trump Refuses to Honor Late Senator
The man who ran the Há»a LÃ² Prison where John McCain was held as a prisoner of war in Vietnam has penned a tribute to the late senator.
Colonel Tráº§n Trá»ng Duyá»‡t praised McCain for both his conduct during his imprisonment and later work as a U.S. politician.
“At that time I liked him personally for his toughness and strong stance,” he said. “Later on, when he became a US Senator, he and Senator John Kerry greatly contributed to promote Vietnam-U.S. relations so I was very fond of him. When I learnt about his death early this morning, I feel very sad. I would like to send condolences to his family. I think it’s the same feeling for all Vietnamese people as he has greatly contributed to the development of Vietnam-U.S. relations.”
