Trump got furious when McCain blasted him during an award ceremony on Monday , McCain warned about the “Half baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States, many believed it was a direct attack against Donald Trump.
John McCain said after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal.
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,”
President Trump was asked about the remarks from McCain during a radio interview on Tuesday — and issued a warning.
He said at the “The Christ Plane Show” “At some point, I fight back and it won’t be pretty,”

Senator John McCain is clearly unhappy with the Trump regimes and the hatred its creating among the American Society , in the twilight of a career in public service that spans four decades, is telling the United Sates how he really feels.
This is not the first time Senator McCain has criticised Donald Trump, but these are some of his most direct comments – ones offered after the senator matched words with actions, voting twice against healthcare reform bills the president was pushing.
Last week another Republican senator, Bob Corker, verbally sparred with the president. Like Mr McCain, Mr Corker – who recently announced his retirement – has probably faced voters for the last time. Both these men are liberated from any ballot-box backlash from angry Trump supporters. Their criticisms will no doubt sting the president. Until Republican politicians in power – and those who want to stay there – join the public critiques, however, these swipes, no matter how direct, may have little lasting significance.
