U.S. Sen. John McCain made an appearance on ABC’s "The View" Monday and discussed his opinion on tension over the death of an American soldier.

While on air with his daughter Meghan, a co-host for the show, McCain expressed disapproval of the controversy surrounding President Trump and the widow of a fallen soldier in Niger.

“My friends, we should not be fighting about a brave American who lost his life serving his country," McCain said. "That should not be a topic of discussion in America today.”

The story gained national attention after the widow of fallen soldier, Sgt. La David Johnson, criticized comments and the tone of President Trump during a phone call.
