Trump again knocks McCain as Republicans urge end to attacks

Staff Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — More Republicans are urging President Donald Trump to halt his attacks on the late Sen. John McCain. But Trump is continuing to complain about the Arizona senator’s health care vote seven months after McCain died of brain cancer.
“I’m not a fan of John McCain,” Trump said again Thursday in an interview taped for Fox Business Network’s “Mornings With Maria.”
Two Republicans on Thursday added their voices to a growing chorus calling for Trump to knock it off.
“I do not appreciate his tweets. John McCain was a dear friend of mine,” Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa, a member of the Republican leadership and a veteran, said at a town hall meeting Thursday, according to video posted by the Des Moines Register. “No, I don’t agree with President Trump. And he does need to stop that.”
Added Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas, a former Navy SEAL: “Mr. President, seriously, stop talking about Senator McCain.”..To read more, please refer to our print or online edition.
