Arizona Sen. John McCain To Allies: 'Americans Stand With You, Even If Our President Doesn't'
Arizona Sen. John McCain is once again publicly disagreeing with one of President Donald Trump’s decisions. McCain pushed back Saturday night against Trump’s reversal of an agreement to sign onto a statement by the G7 countries.
Trump tweeted Saturday night that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was meek and mild after Trudeau announced a joint communique by all seven countries, indicating that the United States had signed on. Trump then reversed the decision to join.
PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
Sen. McCain then tweeted: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't."
To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) June 10, 2018
