'I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be': Furious Trump continues obsessing over the late senator
An angry President Donald Trump just revealed why he recently has been again attacking the late Republican Senator John McCain, a war hero who served in both the House and the Senate for 35 years.
"I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be," President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office during a joint press availability with the President of Brazil, far right extremist Jair Bolsonaro. It's likely Trump's remarks will be published internationally.

"It got to a vote and he said, 'thumbs down,' and our country would have saved a trillion dollars and we would have had great health care," Trump added, which is false.
