President Trump attacked the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at a campaign rally Friday in Missouri for casting the deciding vote last year against a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, just weeks after the senator died from brain cancer, reports The Hill.
“We had it defeated, unfortunately we lost a certain vote,” referring to the late Sen. McCain, “but we lost all the Democrat votes when you think,” Trump said.
McCain died last month at the age of 81 after losing a battle to brain cancer.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump said McCain, who was tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam and who refused early release, was not a war hero “because he was captured.”
Trump was not invited to McCain’s funeral.
