Trump Speaks Out on John McCain: ‘We Very Much Appreciate’ Everything He’s Done for Our Country
President Donald Trump made some brief public remarks tonight about John McCain after not addressing the late senator at various White House events earlier.
Over the weekend, Trump tweeted out a statement sending condolences to McCain’s family, but did not address the man himself. Earlier today reporters shouted out questions to the President about McCain but he did not answer.
After the White House flag dust-up was addressed, Trump finally put out a statement heralding McCain’s service and life.
And tonight, Trump publicly spoke about McCain at a dinner with Evangelical leaders:
At dinner w/evangelicals, Trump praises McCain: "Our hearts and prayers are going to the family of Sen. John McCain…and we very much appreciate everything Sen McCain has done for our country.”
