McCain: Trump Never Apologized For Saying I Am Not a War Hero

McCain on cancer diagnosis ‘I am more energetic and more engaged

McCain said he was leaving the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix after a routine checkup when he got an urgent call from his doctor.

The doctors had discovered a blood clot above McCain's left eye.

Despite his battle with cancer, McCain said he is determined to keep working, saying, "I am more energetic and more engaged as a result of this because I know that I've got to do everything I can to serve this country while I can". ". I said, 'I can take it. We have to respect that", he said. "I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honour, country is the ... is the lodestar for the behaviour that we have to exhibit every single day", said. "Some say three percent, some say 14 percent".

But when asked if he thought Trump was fit for office, McCain was much more diplomatic, saying that "First of all, I believe in our system".

Since the diagnosis, McCain has been making his days count.

"They said that it's very serious", he said of his discussion with his doctors. "You know, it's a very poor prognosis", he continued.

"And, at the same time, celebrate, with gratitude, a life well-lived".

On Friday, McCain announced that he also intends to vote against the latest GOP health-care bill authored by Sens.

In a series of messages posted to Twitter, Trump slammed McCain for his lack of support in nullifying the Affordable Care Act, accusing the former Republican presidential nominee of going back on his word. After his surgery, the senator flew back to Washington to cast the deciding vote to advance legislation in an effort to replace and repeal Obamacare - a bill he effectively killed last week by vowing to vote against.

Sen. John McCain said President Trump has never apologized for disparaging comments he made about the Arizona Republican on the campaign trail.
