Senator John McCain is getting to close to becoming history,as reports claim he will supposedly withdraw from the Republican Party. The senator took exception to the President’s remarks on North Korea and its nuclear threat. We all know that President Trump and McCain don’t see eye to eye. Well to bad for John, because Donald Trump is here to stay.
President Trump was strict about Kim Jong-un and his nuclear threat. He said that the US is ready to meet his provocation “with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” Guam is under a threat, and North Korea has already said that it may soon attack it.
According to McCain, President Trump picked the wrong weapon to deal with the threat. Tough rhetoric can never relieve a tension, as the senator explained. “I don’t know what he’s saying and I’ve long ago given up trying to interpret what he says. That kind of rhetoric, I’m not sure how it helps,” said McCain. There’s clear tension in the air, and U.S. will never allow Yong-un to proceed with his nuclear testing.

The Senator warned about the potential risk, adding that this confrontation is more than serious. “In other words, the old walk softly but carry a big stick, Teddy Roosevelt’s saying, which I think is something that should’ve applied because all it’s going to do is bring us closer to a serious confrontation. I think this is very, very, very serious,” McCain stated.
He took exception to the President’s comments, but seems to be forgetting that we are all the same here. President Trump took the responsibility to lead Americans towards a better future, and no nuclear program will ever stop him. Kim Jong-un should learn his lesson, and McCain should better stick to his position in the new administration.
