Arizona Sen. John McCain just won’t let up when it comes to attacking President Donald Trump. At this point, you’d think McCain would just stop. Nope. His latest dig has to do with what Trump apparently didn’t say while in Vietnam.
From The Hill:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday said it was “sad” that President Trump did not address human rights during a stop in Vietnam.
“@POTUS in #Danang & no mention of human rights – Sad,” McCain wrote on Twitter.
McCain, who was captured and tortured by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War, has been publicly feuding with Trump for months.
The New York Times reported on Thursday that a bipartisan group of 20 House members urged Trump in a letter earlier this week to discuss “Vietnam’s dismal human rights record” with the country’s leader during a stop in Hanoi on Saturday.
Speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Hanoi on Saturday, Trump said that while he does feel the need to discuss the human rights issue in Vietnam, he is also focused on addressing “many other things.”

More, via Washington Examiner:
Critics have accused Trump of avoiding the issue because he has not spoken about it in his official public speeches while abroad in Asia.
Speaking with reporters, however, Trump said he has expressed concern about human rights in conversations with world leaders.
Sen. McCain is an American hero who now has his priorities all out of whack. Get it together, sir.
