John McCain: Trump's 'offensive' Comment Merits Apology to Military Families

John McCain on Monday called on Donald Trump to apologize to military families for saying that the veteran was “not a war hero”, because he was captured and imprisoned for five and a half years in the Vietnam war. McCain said Trump did not, however, need to apologise to him. “There’s so many men and some women who served and sacrificed and happened to be held prisoner,” McCain said on MSNBC. “And somehow to denigrate that in any way, their service, I think is offensive to most of our veterans.”
On Saturday the billionaire and leading Republican candidate for president derided McCain, who has criticized Trump for inflaming anti-immigrant sentiment among extreme factions of the party.
