John McCain Has a Message for Allies About Trump: ‘Americans Stand With You’

On Saturday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) criticized President Donald Trump’s foreign policy with a message of allegiance to the United States’ allies on behalf of Americans.

McCain tweeted that the “bipartisan majorities of Americans” are in favor of free trade and globalization, and “supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values.”

“Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t,” he concluded.

McCain’s message comes in the wake of a reportedly tumultuous G-7 Summit between Trump and other world leaders.

A viral photo shared by the German government shows Trump, arms folded, being stared down by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe also appear in the photo, seemingly looking on from the sides.

The summit came in the wake of Trump announcing steel and aluminum tariffs on U.S. allies. In an effort to curb the disagreements, a joint communique was created to advocate for a “rules-based trading system.”

According to BBC, Canada, the U.S., the U.K., France, Italy, Japan, and Germany agreed on “free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade,” as well as, the importance to fight protectionism.

However, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau later said in a press conference after Trump left the summit that retaliatory tariffs against the U.S. would still be implemented on Jul. 1.

Watch the video below:

In response, Trump tweeted on his way to Singapore that he instructed U.S. representatives not to endorse the communique.

He contrasted Trudeau’s behavior during the meetings, which he characterized as “so meek and mild” with him calling the tariffs “kind of insulting” and saying Canada “will not be pushed around” after the president left.

“Very dishonest [and] weak,” Trump tweeted. “Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 [percent] on dairy!”

Following the G7 summit, Trump set off for Singapore to meet with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. He landed on Sunday just before 9:00 p.m. local time and the meeting is set to take place on Tuesday.

This isn’t the first time McCain has criticized Trump and according to reports, the senator has requested that he not attend his funeral.

    McCain just doesn’t understand that the people in the U.S.A. are sick and tired of working very hard for their company in order to get a salary which is then taxed by our country, only to give it away to many countries that we seem to think need to be supported by our hard working families that are trying to feed and take care of their own families. Give our poor American hard working families a break already. Ever heard the expression charity begins at home!!

    McCain, Even though your health is bad, and you may not have long left on the Earth, you are still badmouthing the greatest President the United States has had since Ronald Reagan. Or he may well be the greatest President in the history of our Nation. Even now you are still a traitor, lying about being a “hero”. You were NEVER anything but a traitor leaving some of our military people to die in a prison camp and other places. Just remember The Lord is watching you and HE knows what you are.

      I am disappointed and shocked that any Republican, even any real American would slam our President the way McCain is doing. It is troubling to say the least. I respect every American’s right to disagree with our government but there is a time “disagreement” is non-applicable and that is the way it is now. I am 86+ years old, lived through several presidents…I can say one thing; President Trump is the best president we have ever had in my lifetime….86+ years. Thank you for allowing me to post my feelings.
