President Trump Responds to Media Attacking Him Over His Handling of McCain’s Death

As you know, the media has put an assault on President Trump after the death of John McCain. This is despite President Trump going to Twitter multiple times to pay his respect. Now President Trump responds to the claims outside of Twitter for the first time.

Here is the statement, per Tweet Transcript:

Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain’s service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment.

I have asked Vice President Mike Pence to offer an address at the ceremony honoring Senator McCain at the United States Capitol this Friday.

At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain’s remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy.

Finally, I have asked General John Kelly, Secretary James Mattis, and Ambassador John Bolton to represent my Administration at his services.

President Trump did a great job of acknowledging their differences while paying respects to the lifelong politician. Surely the media will continue their assault job on our president, but anyone who reads the whole story knows the real truth.
