Defiant Trump Refuses To Apologize For McCain Remarks

Presidential candidate Donald Trump refused on Sunday to apologize for his remarks about the war record of U.S. Senator John McCain despite a growing firestorm among fellow Republicans. Asked on ABC's "This Week" if he owed McCain an apology for saying the former prisoner in North Vietnam was only considered a war hero because he was captured, Trump said, "No, not at all." McCain, a Navy fighter pilot, was imprisoned and tortured in a Hanoi prison for five years during the Vietnam War after being shot down. Two fellow Republican presidential candidates, Texas Governor Rick Perry and Florida Senator Marco Rubio said Trump's remarks made him unfit to serve as commander in chief. However, Trump said he had no plans to drop out of the race.
