‘People Like What I Said’: Trump Still Refuses to Say He’s Sorry to McCain for POW Insult
Even though John McCain‘s been saying he’ll get in line behind Donald Trump, he’s insisted that the mogul has got to finally apologize for his infamous slam against McCain’s heroism and that of other POWs. If the mogul’s comments from this morning are of any indication however, the Arizona senator shouldn’t hold his breath.
Speaking on Wednesday’s “Imus in the Morning,” Don Imus asked Trump about whether he could’ve done things differently regarding his McCain comments from last July. Trump responded that he’s actually apologized to McCain (which he hasn’t) and said that of course McCain and all other American military men are heroes whether they’re caught by the enemy or not.
When Imus pressed further if he had any regrets, Trump said that it was perfectly alright because he saw a jump in the polls soon after it the incident.
“I like not to regret anything. You do things and you say things. And what I said, frankly, is what I said. And some people like what I said, if you want to know the truth. There are many people that like what I said. You know after I said that, my poll numbers went up seven points.”
Imus persisted that Trump wasn’t in a position to criticize McCain considering the fact that he ducked the draft, to which Trump bragged about his deferments and how far up he was on the student lottery.
