Does Trump’s Bad Blood With McCain Go Back To 1996?
Donald Trump can hold a grudge better than a Sicilian. It’s bad enough he gets his knickers in a twist when someone criticizes him. But if he thinks you rooked him on a deal, he’ll go all in.
Let’s go back in time to 1996. Donald Trump wanted a $350 million federal loan guarantee from HUD for some Manhattan project he was working on. One of the people in Congress opposed to it? John McCain.
That is a strong possibility why it was 1999 when Trump first floated the “He’s not a hero because he was captured” garbage about McCain:
There is no reason to think it wouldn’t continue, especially if McCain didn’t “smarten up” and support Trump’s presidency.
Trump’s pettiness knows no bounds.
