Trump Refuses to Apologize for Controversial McCain Statements

Standard

Trump Drew a Mix of Nervous Laughs and Boos From the Crowd

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump refused to apologize for his latest controversial statements.  Yesterday, on stage in Iowa, Trump criticized Senator John McCain, saying, “He is not a war hero.  He is a war hero because he was captured.  I like people that weren’t captured. OK?”

Trump has come under considerable criticism for his statements, and he clarified by saying, “I have great respect for all those served in the military, including those who weren’t captured and are war heroes.” But he has still refused to apologize and Meghan McCain, the senator’s 30 year-old daughter, tweeted “I can’t believe what I am reading this morning. Horrified. Disgusted.  There are no words.”
