Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said American leadership around the globe was stronger under President Barack Obama than it is today, according to the Guardian.
When asked if America’s standing on the global stage was better under Obama, McCain reportedly responded:
“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.”
McCain also apparently argued that the world isn’t “sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.”
The Republican senator’s harsh rebuke of the sitting president didn’t sit well with Trump’s supporters. Some called him “senile,” others claimed he has “lost his damned mind.”
Of course, there were plenty of Trump critics who were happy to share the news too.
