McCain’s Death: Trump Comes Under Fire

U.S President, Donald Trump, has come under fire for a recent condolence tweet to the family of late Senator John McCain.

Mr. Trump and Mr. McCain, though of the same Republican Party, disagreed on a lot of issues when the senator was alive.

After Mr McCain’s death, however, the president offered his condolence;

“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!,” Mr Trump said in his tweet.

The message immediately sparked off a wide range of debate on his timeline, most of which were somewhat ‘derogatory’.

The Ultimate Lowlifer

“Keep your “prayers”. U didn’t say one nice thing while he was alive and in fact disrespected him on many occasions and now you want to send your condolences?!? U fake POS!,” Zalina‏ (@Zalina_MYPEACE) said.

Sandra Benvenuto‏ (@sandrabenven67) said “Seriously! Your last press conference you didn’t acknowledge a bill named after McCain. On numerous occasions you insulted John McCain. John McCain served his country honourably. He’s a true American Hero!”

“We know why you despised John McCain…..he was everything you weren’t…..a true American hero and patriot!” Andrew Madison‏ (@AndrewMadison3) said.

Infuriated by Trump’s tweet, Kerry Jj‏ (@kerryme788) said “Those of us who have served, lost blood, and lost family members defending this country have idolize @SenJohnMcCain as a true hero . This same group think you’re a coward, a liar, and incompetent. So please leave your insincere words to yourself.”

First They Came To Kill The Biroms

“As an Englishman sitting here I feel very sorry for the American people to have you representing them You are a very poor excuse of a human being and insult all of the things that that makes America great,” Rod Beaton‏ (@rodbeaton1949) said.

Mr Trump and McCain had a complicated relationship which saw them in constant opposition with each other.
