“Look, D.C., it’s not an exaggeration or hubris to say it looks like a war zone right now,” McCain said on Tuesday.
She noted there are more U.S. troops stationed in Washington, D.C. than Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria combined.
“If this is anyone’s definition of making America great, I don’t know who they are,” McCain added.
She claimed Trump is leaving office with the lowest approval rating of any modern president in U.S. history.
McCain explained it is lower than the approval ratings of former presidents Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter.

“By all accounts and anyone’s metric, he’s leaving as a failure in a lot of ways,” McCain continued.
She predicted the nation will look back at Trump’s administration with “deeply harsh eyes.”
McCain argued, “To leave it looking like a war zone will be his legacy.”
Pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, the day when lawmakers met to certify the Electoral College results, as IJR previously reported.
The House moved to impeach Trump for a second time on the charge of
“incitement of insurrection.”
“The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government, which they did not like,” McConnell said.
A total of 25,000 National Guard troops have been deployed to the nation’s capital ahead of the inauguration on Wednesday.
