US Senator John McCain showed immense courage this weekend, traveling to a foreign country to bash the President of the United States.
What makes McCain’s bashing all the more courageous was that the US Senator trashed Trump during a time when the POTUS is in Texas helping victims of Hurricane Harvey.
The Washington Examiner reported…
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said that America is still committed to traditional alliances and values, despite doubts that have emerged due to the “actions and statements of our president.”
McCain said in remarks Saturday at the Ambrosetti Forum, a major economic and policy conference, that he realizes that he comes to Italy “at a time when many are questioning whether America is still committed to remaining engaged in the world, to upholding our traditional alliances and standing up for the values we share.”
“It is true that there is a real debate underway now in my country about what kind of role America should play in the world,” McCain said. “And frankly, I do not know how this debate will play out.”
He added that the “future of the world will turn, to a large extent, on how this debate in America is resolved.”
