President Trump Tweets Condolences After John McCain's Death

President Donald Trump has released a statement after news broke of Senator John McCain‘s death.

The 72-year-old President took to Twitter on Saturday (August 25) to send his love and respect to the late senator’s family.

“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!” Donald tweeted.

Donald and John have not always been big fans of each other. John crossed the Donald last year over the GOP attempt to repeal Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which John voted against. Donald once even said that John was “not a war hero.”

John sadly passed away after his year-long battle with brain cancer.

    Narcissists are incapable of ‘deepest sympathies’.

    Another boilerplate response from Trump.

    Of course, Donnie has more respect for cancer patients who don’t succumb to the disease.

    Even in death, Trump can’t say anything kind about McCain. He continued to mock John for the last year of his life over the healthcare vote. God Bless John McCain 🇺🇸

    Obama wrote an eloquent statement, especially for a man whose campaign with his VP candidate accused him of being a muslim terrorist.

    Yet Trump, the POTUS, could only muster about 20 words.

    That’s the difference between human VS just evil apathy.

    I just don’t get the exclamation point at the end why is he yelling his prayers at them?
