Ever since John McCain decided that he’ll be leaving congress, he’s stood up to Donald Trump in a big way a couple of times. The first time was when he boldly fought Trump as he tried to take health insurance away from millions of Americans. Most can remember McCain’s thumbs down sign as he made his vote. Well today he again stood tall and gave a big F.U. to Trump with an amazing tweet.
To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.

Now that’s how it’s done! While Trump is doing his best to ruin America’s stance in the world, McCain steps up and fights back. McCain was responding to Trump’s ridiculously childish tweets today after he left the G-7 summit. Although after Trump went up there and blasted our reputation, the summit should probably be renamed the G-6, considering the rest of the world wants nothing to do with us anymore.
Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!

Because of Trump’s totally ignorant views on trade and globalization, he’s implementing steel and aluminum tariffs that will put us front and center at the head of a trade war. The rest of the world is mad about it too. It’s nice that John McCain is standing up with the rest of the world against Trump. It’s also mind blowing that a Republican would do something like that. Usually only Democrats stand up and fight for what’s right.
Are we executing Putin’s diplomatic and national security strategy or AMERICA’s diplomatic and national security strategy? After the last few days, it’s hard to tell.

This week started with @realDonaldTrump boosting a Chinese company identified as a national security threat to the U.S. It ended with him standing up for Russia and alienating our allies at the G7. #MAGA

But we welcome McCain to our side during this battle. Hopefully he’ll be able to rally a few more Republicans to stand up against Trump too. But they’re Republicans so probably not…they’re not really known for having a backbone after all. At least one of them decided to fight for the best interests of this country.
