Trump Rips John McCain Over ‘Tremendous Disservice’ To Nation

President Donald Trump continued his relentless attack on late Senator John McCain, saying the Arizona Republican “did the nation a tremendous disservice” by voting against a GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare in 2017.

“He did the Republican Party a tremendous disservice and he did the nation a tremendous disservice, tremendous, and it’s unfortunate,” Trump said on Thursday during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity.

“He went thumbs-down at the very last moment and I thought it was a disgraceful thing to do and very, very bad for our country and bad for health care,” Trump said, referring to the literal thumbs-down the late senator gave to the repeal at the time.

“It was done and then John McCain, at the very last moment, late in the evening, went thumbs-down and everybody said, ‘What was that?'” he said.

Trump’s comments mark just the latest criticism he has directed toward McCain, who died from brain cancer in August 2018.

Last month, the bombastic president railed against the senator for his connection to a dossier of claims about him and Russia and complained about not receiving a “thank you” for giving the senator the “kind of funeral that he wanted.”

“I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you. That’s OK,” he said while delivering remarks to workers at a factory in Ohio.

Trump told Hannity that he and Republicans will again try to repeal ObamaCare, saying: “We’re going to do things that nobody has ever seen on health care, but we have to get back the House.”

Democrats won by the House majority in 2018, partly by running against the GOP and Trump on healthcare.
