Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) seems to have been on a campaign to attack President Donald Trump.
He’s attacked Trump on health care, becoming the critical vote to kill the Obamacare repeal.
He called out his pardon of Joe Arpaio.
He even criticized Trump’s statements on Charlottesville, appearing to describe Antifa in favorable terms.
But now, he has even taken his criticism of Trump on the road to Italy, violating the tradition of not criticizing the President overseas.
From Washington Examiner:
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said that America is still committed to traditional alliances and values, despite doubts that have emerged due to the “actions and statements of our president.”
McCain said in remarks Saturday at the Ambrosetti Forum, a major economic and policy conference, that he realizes that he comes to Italy “at a time when many are questioning whether America is still committed to remaining engaged in the world, to upholding our traditional alliances and standing up for the values we share.”
He said that there was an argument underway in the U.S. over the role that the U.S. should play in the world.
McCain made the stunning admission that he’s for globalization.
McCain added that he believes bipartisan majorities of Americans are in favor of alliances, trade, investment, and globalization.
“It may not look that way on Twitter, but that is what opinion polls clearly show, time after time after time,” he said.
Don’t bet on it, if ‘globalization’ means encroaching upon Constitutional rights or the sovereignty of the United States.
But for those who see it as between globalization and sovereignty, McCain just made clear on which side he stands, if you were unsure.
