John McCain To CNN

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) berated Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy on October 18 for asking about the senator's relationship with President Trump.

"What I was talking about is an environment here of. a reversion of the attitude to the '30s, which was one of the major reasons we fought World War II", McCain told reporters at the Capitol.

McCain on Monday received the backing of another long-time Trump critic Mitt Romney, who was also the Republican candidate for president in 2012.

Trump and McCain have been publicly feuding in recent months, particularly after the latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare failed in Congress.

"People have to be careful because at some point I fight back".


Donald Trump is continuing to stoke his feud with veteran Republican senator John McCain, warning the Arizona Republican he would "fight back" against criticism. He was a war hero because he was captured.

The president has never apologized for the remark, McCain has said.

"We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil".

Mr McCain was presented with the medal by former US Vice-President Joe Biden, whose eldest son died from the same type of cancer Mr McCain now has.

Indeed it was. The supposition in Doocy's question, after all, is that McCain's tensions with the president are the fault and responsibility of the senator.


In the radio interview, Trump aired his frustration with fellow Republicans who have eluded him in his attempt to overhaul the health care law approved during President Barack Obama's administration.

Conway said, 'We hope we can rely upon sen McCain's vote on any number of issues that Sen.

During Trump's presidency, McCain has questioned the president's immigration policies and warned him against cozying up to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But both Republican senators from Arizona have clashed with the president. Trump had said there were "very fine people" among the Nazis.

Doocy asked, "Has your relationship with the president frayed to the point that you are not going to support anything that he comes to you and asks for?"
