Trump doubles down on attack of McCain over Obamacare repeal vote

Romney on Tuesday tweeted: "I can't understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God".

McCain did not say "thumbs, down, but he famously made the thumbs down sign as he announced his vote on a failed ObamaCare repeal bill that would have stolen health care coverage from millions of Americans".

Although Trump has sparred with McCain before - memorably disputing the former Navy officer's status as a war hero, and noting that "I prefer people who weren't captured" - this weekend's tweets mark the first time Trump explicitly connected McCain to the controversial dossier.

John McCain, on Tuesday and criticized President Trump for what he called disparaging remarks.

Despite Trump's comments, he gave more than $30,000 to the campaign to elect McCain president in 2008, according to the Federal Election Commission's website.

"I'm very unhappy that he didn't repeal and replace Obamacare, as you know", Trump said, referring to McCain's vote against overhauling the Affordable Care Act in July 2017.

President Donald Trump tweeted: "We stand in solidarity with New Zealand" and pledged to give the country any assistance it needs. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said some of the victims may have been new immigrants and refugees.

McCain, who passed away from brain cancer last August, has been the subject of many presidential tweets since his death.

In a series of tweets sent from the president in the early morning of March 17, Trump made allegations that McCain sent a "fake dossier" to both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and media about Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Meghan McCain, the late senator's daughter, offered thinly veiled criticism of Trump during a eulogy for her father and has been far more outspoken in recent days.

The View co-host reiterated that opinion on the daytime talk show Monday, stating that Trump "will never be a great man". "My father was his kryptonite in life".
