Sen. Mitt Romney criticized President Donald Trump on Tuesday for attacking the late Sen. John McCain.
Romney tweeted Tuesday that he "can's understand" why President Trump would "disparage a man as exemplary" as McCain.
I can’t understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God.— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) March 19, 2019
On Tuesday, Trump defended his attacks on McCain saying he never liked the late senator.
"I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be," said Trump.
Over the weekend, Trump repeatedly hit McCain on Twitter, claiming he provided the FBI a copy of a dossier compiled by a former British spy claiming connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. That claim is not true, as the FBI had the dossier first.
Trump also criticized McCain for casting the decisive vote against a measure to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
