McCain Takes a Shot at President Trump From Beyond the Grave in Farewell Message
John McCain passed away Saturday night at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer but that did not stop him from taking one last shot at President Trump from beyond the grave.
McCain’s farewell message to the nation was read aloud in Phoenix on Monday afternoon by Rick Davis, a former campaign manager for McCain.
“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all corners of the globe,” McCain said in a farewell statement he penned taking a shot at Trump.
“We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideas rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been,” Davis continued as he held back tears.
“We are 325 million opinionated, vociferous individuals. We are argue and compete and sometimes even vilify each other in our raucous public debates. But we have always had so much more in common with each other than in disagreement.
McCain, 81, served in Congress for over three decades and refused to endorse President Trump in the 2016 election.
“If only we give each other the benefit of the presumption that we all love our country, we will get through these challenging times,” family spokesman Rick Davis says, reading John McCain’s last words. “We believe always in the promise and greatness of America” #tictocnews pic.twitter.com/RSeKVkSOWf
