Donald Trump issued a statement tonight regarding what he said about John McCain. He is not apologizing and doubling down.
"I am not a fan of John McCain because he has done so little for our Veterans and he should know better than anybody what the Veterans need, especially in regards to the VA. He is yet another all talk, no action politician who spends too much time on television and not enough time doing his job and helping the Vets. He is also allowing our military to decrease substantially in size and strength, something which should never be allowed to happen.
Furthermore, he was extremely disrespectful to the thousands upon thousands of people, many of whom happen to be his constituents, that came to listen to me speak about illegal immigration in Phoenix last week by calling them "crazies".
These were not "crazies"---these were great American citizens.
I have great respect for all those who serve in our military including those that weren't captured and are also heroes.
I want to strengthen our military and take care of our Veterans. I want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN especially for those that serve to protect our freedom. I am fighting for our Veterans!"
Below is the full video of Trump's statement yesterday on John McCain being a war hero. John McCain who has a history of calling people names such as last year calling fellow U.S. Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee as well as Congressman Justin Amash "Wacko Birds", decided to call 15,000 of his constituents as well as Donald Trump "Crazies."
