McCain family punches back at Trump's latest Twitter tirade

Senate Veterans Affairs Chairman Johnny Isakson is leading Republicans speaking out again against President Donald Trump's bashing of the late Sen.

President Trump got right to it Wednesday as he rallied with tank makers in western OH, saying he deserved their plaudits as he works to lock down 2020 support and grapples with the closure of a vehicle factory across the state.

Trump also said that McCain, who died of brain cancer, had harmed USA foreign policy and American veterans.

Trump was referring to Kramer's testimony about the dossier that was unsealed on Thursday and reported in the Daily Caller, as well as joking statements frequently made by the Senator about being last in his class at the Naval Academy. Over the weekend, Trump renewed his long-running grievances in some caustic tweets.

"My father was his kryptonite in life, he was his kryptonite in death", Meghan McCain said, adding that she thought Trump's life was "pathetic".

"I have to be honest, I've never liked him much". "I don't care if he's president of United States, owns all the real estate in NY or is building the greatest immigration system in the world".

When President Donald Trump claimed credit for keeping the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center operational, a frequent theme in his Wednesday address at JSMC, employees and supporters cheered him on.

"It's deplorable what he said", Isakson said of Trump. McCain, an Arizona Republican who had served in Congress since 1983, was a one-time Navy pilot who was North Vietnam's most prominent prisoner of war.

Islamic world strongly condemns New Zealand mosque attacks
Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks , with some deploring the demonisation of Muslims. There was a heavy police presence at the hospital where families of the injured had gathered.

"These kids are out there listening to the president of the United States talk that way about the most decorated senator in history who is dead, it just sets the worst tone possible", he told the Bulwark.

Democratic Coalition co-founder Scott Dworkin added: "Trump just attacked Senator McCain & his family again, because he says no one thanked him for McCain's funeral".

Democrats, meanwhile, were eager to renew their praise for McCain. That's what I called it from the floor of the Senate seven months ago. "Everyone should give him and his family the respect, admiration, and peace they deserve".

The late senator's family have also assailed Mr Trump.

The Lima Army Tank Plant had been at risk for closure but is now benefiting from Trump's focus on boosting defense spending.

Trump's attacks have also appeared to unleash trolls targeting the McCain family.

And on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Democrat of NY, said he would re-introduce legislation to rename the Russell Senate Office Building after McCain - a particularly surgical jab at a president who tirelessly promotes his brand name and discusses himself in the third person.

Along with a photo of the private message, Cindy wrote in her caption, "I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be".
