Regrets, President Trump has none.
The President insisted Thursday that he handled John McCain’s death appropriately — even though he ordered flags raised to full staff the day after the Republican war hero passed away and didn’t issue a statement about him until two days later.
“I’ve done everything that they requested,” Trump told Bloomberg News during an Oval Office interview.
Asked if he had missed an opportunity to unite the country in the wake of McCain’s Saturday death from brain cancer, Trump demurred.
“I don’t think that I did at all,” he said. “I don’t think I have at all.”
In the same interview, Trump stunned his own press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, after refusing to say whether he believes McCain would have been a better President than Barack Obama.
“I don’t want to comment on it,” Trump said. “I have a very strong opinion, all right.”
Sanders glared at the President, at which point he joked she was “having a nervous breakdown” over his response.
“Maybe I’ll give you that answer some day later,” Trump said.
