Are Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham 'Looking To Start WWIII'?




Politico: Trump: McCain and Graham 'looking to start WWIII'

President Donald Trump lashed out Sunday at Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham for publicly second-guessing his executive order on refugees, calling them "weak on immigration" and "looking to start World War III."

The rebuke, in a pair of Sunday afternoon tweets, came after McCain (R-Ariz.) and Graham (R-S.C.) criticized Trump's executive order on immigration and refugee policy in a joint statement Sunday. They said they "fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism."

Trump responded a few hours later.

As to whether or not Mr. Graham and Mr. McCain are looking to start WWII. I certainly hope not. With that said their approaches to Russia has been extremely reckless. As such, I can understand why someone might conclude these men are trying to start WWIII.

McCain and Graham are not the GOP leadership. They're sore losers who realize anti Trump = instant media attention.
