John McCain attacks President Trump, team in ‘disarray’ during this ‘dangerous time’

Arizona Sen. John McCain has been a vocal opponent of President Trump from the Republican side of the aisle and now the former GOP candidate for President used his speech at the Munich Security Conference to attack the administration.

“I know there is profound concern across Europe and the world that America is laying down the mantle of global leadership. I can only speak for myself, but I do not believe that that is the message you will hear from all of the American leaders who cared enough to travel here to Munich this weekend.

“These are dangerous times, but you should not count America out.”

McCain noted the recent departure of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to defend his portrayal of the administration as in “disarray.”

“I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they’ve got a lot of work to do,” he said.

McCain praised Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis: “The president, I think, makes statements that on other occasions he contradicts himself. So we’ve learned to watch what the president does as opposed to what he says.”

Check out the clip below.

After the senior senator references common ground with the populist president, McCain looked to the immigration and border security executive order, stating that “I can assure you that  … what we just saw on the immigration order that both the legislative and the judicial branches will be exercising our constitutional responsibilities.”

The Gang of Eight Bill was a key immigration reform plan perpetuated by Sen. McCain and failed miserably. Funding for border security and the unchecked immigration problems, even in his home state, were all under the tenure (and legacy) of McCain’s time in the Senate.

McCain had no problem praising Germany’s leader, Angela Merkel and relaying how much better the world would be if HE was President of the United States, raising more ire among critics.

For example, McCain recently engaged in an eleven-minute policy discussion with Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, the leader of Ukraine. One problem: the phone conversation was with Russian “hacker” pranksters.
