It seems as if Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) just can’t steer clear of attacking and/or being critical of President Donald Trump these days.
He attacked Trump on health care, and decided to vote against the repeal of Obamacare. He called Trump out over his pardon of Joe Arpaio. He even criticized Trump over his “many sides” remarks regarding the rally-gone-wrong in Charlottesville, VA.
However, his latest criticism of Trump has gone a little too far. As in all the way to Italy!
According to the Washington Examiner:
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.”
What’s more is that McCain suggested that there was an argument underway in the U.S. over the role that it should play in regards to globalization.
McCain added that he believes bipartisan majorities of Americans are in favor of alliances, trade, investment, and globalization.
“It may not look that way on Twitter, but that is what opinion polls clearly show, time after time after time,” he said.
This comment in particularly is very interesting, because it sheds light on where McCain stands on globalization. Apparently, he’s for it! Who knew?!
