Trump Releases Tweetstorm After Receiving Blistering Response to McCain Comments

After saying that John McCain is not a war hero after being captured in Hanoi, Vietnam, receiving slams across the Internet, and releasing an emailed statement, Donald Trump is now taking to Twitter to defend his statements.

Trump’s tweets also include references to his earlier comments about immigrants, as well as promises that he will succeed where he says McCain failed by “making this right” for vets.

At a follow-up press event, Trump partially walked back (but not really) in an attempt to clarify his statements, but the online response remains overwhelmingly negative.
