Senator John McCain continues his passive “resist” campaign of his own and while speaking in Australia he slammed the President.
During his remarks, while attending an Asia-Pacific conference, Senator McCain tried to assure allies claiming America is going through “a rough period.” McCain said:
‘‘I realize that some of President Trump’s actions and statements have unsettled America’s friends. They have unsettled many Americans as well,’’ McCain said in a speech organized by the United States Studies Centre. ‘‘There is real debate under way now in my country about what kind of role America should play in the world and, frankly, I don’t know how this debate will play out. But I do believe — and I don’t think I’m exaggerating here — that the future of the world will turn to a large extent on how this debate in America is resolved. That’s why I and others are fighting so hard to ensure that America stands by our allies and remains an active, principled leader in the world.’’
It’s no secret that McCain and the President have had “issues” ever since the Republican primary. Senator McCain has quietly been the most outspoken Republican against the President, however, McCain has voted with the President in the Senate on every occasion.
