McCain Will Block Trump Until the President Gives Him What He Wants

On Tuesday, Senate Armed Service Chairman John McCain (Repulican-Arizona) claimed that the Trump administration is not providing enough information on the attack in Niger that killed four U.S. Green Berets.

When asked whether the administration has been clear on information on Niger, McCain said “no.”

McCain also added, “I had a better working relationship, as far as information back and forth, with Ash Carter than I do with an old friend of 20 years.”

Carter was the former defense secretary for the Obama administration, which McCain consistently criticized in the past for defense policies he disagreed with.

The friend that McCain alluded to was Defense Secretary James Mattis, McCain. McCain added that the was referring national security adviser H.R. McMaster, as well.

He said, “I think they had this idea that once Trump won that we are a unicameral government.”

On Oct. 4, four U.S. Green Berets were killed, and two more were injured when their group of about a dozen U.S. soldiers and 40 Nigerien troops were ambushed during a joint patrol. The Pentagon has blamed self-radicalized, Islamic State in Iraq and Syria-affiliated militants for the attack.

President Trump did not personally comment on the attack until Monday, when he said he would call the families of the fallen soldiers “at some point in the time” and falsely claimed that President Obama and other past president did not call Gold Star families.
