Sen. John McCain says he hasn’t met President Trump since he took office
The history between President Donald Trump and Arizona Sen. John McCain hasn’t been lined with rose pedals, but McCain revealed that he hasn’t met Trump since the former businessman took office, The Daily Beast reported.
McCain reportedly said he’d met Trump “some years ago,” but not since then. Meanwhile, the Republican senator has spoken frequently with Trump’s National Security Adviser and Defense Secretary, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Jim Mattis, respectively.
McCain has repeatedly been an outspoken opponent of Trump’s. Last month, the long-time politician lambasted the Trump administration, saying it’s in “disarray.” Less than two weeks ago, McCain called on Trump to provide evidence of his claims of wiretapping by the Obama administration.
Just days ago, McCain publicly advocated for a special committee to investigate Trump’s possible ties with Russia, citing an inability for Congress to handle the situation on its own.
The Daily Beast article also reports McCain questioned Trump’s infamous tweeting, but he did cede that his controversy with Russia shouldn’t preclude him from meeting with Russians.
McCain was also recently named one of the world’s top-10 greatest leaders by Fortune Magazine.
