Trump also reportedly made comments regarding McCain and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, wherein he stated, "a lot of people are asking me, because they love me, about a man named John McCain", and then said "I've never liked him much...probably never will".

The late senator has been attacked by Donald Trump.

In a five minute rant, the president criticized the Arizona Republican during a speech at an OH military tank factory Wednesday.

At the time there was a chorus of condemnation from across the Republican Party and predictions that the NY businessman's White House hopes were ruined. "That's okay", Trump told the crowd, which included mostly factory workers, many of whom are military vets.
