"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", Romney tweeted. When asked by a reporter why he still attacks McCain months after his death, Trump explained that it has to do, in part, with his vote on Obamacare.

"I think that's a disgrace, plus there are other things", Trump said.

The late Sen. John McCain speaks at a rally outside Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) finally issued a statement Tuesday against the attacks President Donald Trump has continued to make on the late Sen.

"I'm very unhappy that he didn't repeal and replace Obamacare as you know, he campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years", Trump said.

Later that day, Trump retweeted a tweet from a supporter who wrote that "millions of Americans truly LOVE President Trump, not McCain".

In addition to his 2017 healthcare vote, the president took aim at McCain, who passed away in August after a months-long battle with brain cancer, for his reported role in passing a salacious dossier full of damning allegations about Trump's ties to Russian Federation to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Amid a spate of tweets over the weekend, the president called it a "stain" on McCain's record and later took another swipe at him, falsely asserting that he was "last in his class" at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

During the final days of the last presidential election, McCain withdrew his support for Trump when the "Access Hollywood" video was made public, showing the 2016 Republican nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women.

A former McCain aide disputed even more of the president's account.

McCain's daughter Meghan responded to the tweet in a Monday taping of her talk show, "The View", saying Trump criticizes her late father because "he will never be a great man".

"My father was his kryptonite in life and he was kryptonite in death", she said.
