President Donald Trump called down “fire and fury.”
Well, the Arizona Senator John McCain appeared on an Arizona radio station saying that remarks like the president made “don’t help.” Speaking on KTAR’s Mac & Gaydos, John McCain said that he took exception to the president’s language because “you got to be sure you can do what you say you’re going to do.” The senator stated that he hoped that Trump would act more like Teddy Roosevelt and “speak softly while carrying a big stick.” McCain continued to describe that the “great leaders I’ve seen don’t threaten unless they’re ready to act and I’m not sure President Trump is ready to act.”
McCain admitted that he doesn’t have any idea what Trump is trying to do, “I don’t know what he’s saying, and I’ve long ago given up trying to interpret what he says.” But he added, “That kind of rhetoric, I’m not sure how it helps.”
It wasn’t long after the McCain interview that North Korea issued a statement saying that it was “carefully examining” a plan to strike the U.S. territory of Guam.
