President Donald Trump on Tuesday ignored reporters when he was asked if the White House owes Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) an apology after staffer Kelly Sadler mocked the Arizona senator because he is dying of brain cancer.
While walking through the Capital to a meeting with Republican lawmakers, Trump stopped to talk to a group of reporters and noted that First Lady Melania Trump was doing “really well” after undergoing a procedure on her kidney.
“The doctors were incredible” Trump said. “Walter Reed [hospital] was fantastic. Thank you very much.”
Before Trump could walk away, reporters shouted questions about how the White House intended to handle Sadler’s controversial remark that McCain “doesn’t matter” because he’s dying.
“Do you owe John McCain an apology?” one reporter bellowed.
But Trump waved and walked away with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) at his side.
Several Republican senators have already said that they will not confront Trump about the McCain remarks at today’s meeting.
