John McCain Undercuts President Trump With Foreign Leaders as He Leaves G7 and Heads for North Korea Meeting

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) posted a statement Saturday night undermining President Donald Trump with foreign leaders after the President had departed a contentious Quebec G7 summit over trade issues and was headed for a historic meeting with North Korea in Singapore over nuclear weapons.

Photo from G7 posted by Angela Merkel’s Instagram account has gone viral with opponents of Trump who fantasize he is being backed in to a corner by the other G7 leaders led by Merkel.

McCain’s statement reads, “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.”

McCain’s tweet quickly went viral with nearly 20,000 likes, over 7,000 retweets and over 1.000 comments in the half hour from when it was posted at 8:55 p.m. EDT.
