John McCain Finally Responds to Donald Trump
Sen. John McCain finally spoke out in regard to
Donald Trump's comments. McCain said Monday that Trump
does not owe him an apology and that he does not
view himself as a hero, but that Donald Trump should a apologize to
veterans for his comments about soldiers captured in war.
Trump is facing a lot of heat from his own party for saying over the weekend
that McCain, who was held as a prisoner of war for more than
five years during the Vietnam War, was "a war hero because he
was captured. I like people who weren't captured."
McCain feels that his senior officers
during the Vietnam War are the ones who should be viewed as a
heroes, not him.
"A great honor of my life was to serve in the company of heroes. I'm not a hero," he said.
"But I think Trump may owe an apology to the families of those who have
sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience in
serving their country."
McCain also declined to attack Trump for avoiding service in the
Vietnam War through a series of deferments, saying "...to look back in anger is
nonproductive...our country was divided in an almost unprecedented fashion
during the Vietnam War, and when I came home I was shocked."
Trump is still refusing to apologize for the comments, even as
he is being pressured to do so from members of his own party.
