WATCH: Trump Blasts Ghost of John McCain for Derailing ObamaCare Repeal
President Donald J. Trump was asked by a reporter at his joint press conference with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro about his recent knocks against late Senator John McCain, with whom Trump has often taken issue.
In his typically blunt fashion, Trump responded:
“I’m very unhappy that he didn’t repeal and replace ObamaCare, as you know. He campaigned on repealing and replacing ObamaCare for years and then he 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. So, he campaigned, he told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace. And then for some reason — I think I understand the reason — he ended up going thumbs up. And frankly had we even known that I think we would have gotten a vote because we could have gotten somebody else. So, I think that’s disgraceful. Plus there are other things. I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be.”
Trump recently knocked McCain on Twitter for his dealings with the dirty and unproven Steele Dossier, which McCain brought to disgraced former FBI director James Comey and the rest of his clan of alphabet boys in an effort to stop Trump from becoming president.
“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!” he said.
McCain died seven months ago, and Trump’s attacks did not sit well with some. Others, however, recognize McCain for who he was. A savage political operator who did everything in his power to protect his precious GOP establishment from Trump, who promised to destroy it on behalf of the American people.
