Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Honors Sen. McCain As ‘An American Patriot And Hero’




Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau became the first world leader to mark the passing of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), honoring the Republican lawmaker as an “American patriot and hero.”

“Senator John McCain was an American patriot and hero whose sacrifices for his country, and lifetime of public service, were an inspiration to millions,” Trudeau tweeted. “Canadians join Americans tonight in celebrating his life and mourning his passing.”




President Trump offered his “sympathies and respect” to the family of Senator John McCain in a short Tweet on Saturday.

“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!” Trump tweeted.

Fox News analyst Brit Hume tore into Trump for the tweet because he refused to mention “a kind word” about the senator in the statement.

Hume pointed out that Trump’s tweet avoided directly praising McCain himself, a sharp cry from the hundreds of tributes to the late senator from lawmakers, former presidents, and world leaders.


“Still not a kind word about McCain himself,” Hume tweeted.
