McCain raps US Republican presidential frontrunner Trump

McCain raps US Republican presidential frontrunner Trump
Veteran US Republican Senator John McCain has hit out at the party’s presidential frontrunner Donald Trump over his incendiary rhetoric on the campaign trail.

According to Press TV, the Republican presidential nominee in 2008 joined the 2012 nominee, Mitt Romney, on Thursday in criticizing Trump, saying, “I share the concerns about Donald Trump that my friend and former Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, described in his speech today.”

Romney had earlier called Trump a phony and fraud, slamming his foreign policy.

McCain picked on the Republican frontrunner, saying, “I would also echo the many concerns about Mr. Trump’s uninformed and indeed dangerous statements on national security issues that have been raised by 65 Republican defense and foreign policy leaders.”

He also said Americans need to watch out who they vote for.

“I want Republican voters to pay close attention to what our party's most respected and knowledgeable leaders and national security experts are saying about Mr. Trump, and to think long and hard about who they want to be our next commander-in-chief and leader of the free world,” said McCain.

McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, made the statement a few days after his Democratic challenger in his re-election bid, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, released an ad Monday, slamming McCain for not standing up to Trump.
