Donald Trump is now charged with uniting the Republicans now that he is the party’s presumed presidential nominee. While there are prominent people who say they simply will never vote for the real estate mogul, Senator John McCain is not one of them.
The senior Senator from Arizona said that Trump “could be a capable leader,” and that it would be foolish to overlook the will of the people. But, McCain is looking for Trump to heal some wounds that were created during the contentious primary.
McCain is calling on Trump to apologize to prisoners of war for mocking them for being captured during war. Trump said, “I like people who weren’t captured.”
Watch what McCain says about Trump here, via CNN:
The Senator said he doesn’t personally need or want an apology but he would like amends to be offered for fellow prisoners of war who lived under horrific conditions while serving our country.
“I think it’s important for Donald Trump to express his appreciation for veterans, not John McCain, but veterans who were incarcerated as prisoners of war,” he said.
“What he said about me, John McCain, that’s fine. I don’t require any repair of that, but when he said ‘I don’t like people who were captured,’ then there’s a body of American heroes that I’d like to see him retract that statement. Not about me, but about the others.”
McCain says he is supporting Trump, but he would just like this olive branch extended to prisoners of war since Trump is seeking to be Commander in Chief.
