On Wednesday, President Donald Trump delivered remarks at the Lima Army Tank Plant a few hours away from Lordstown, Ohio.
Standing in front of tanks, President Trump once again tore into the late Senator John McCain.
“So I have to be honest, I’ve never liked him much. Hasn’t been for me,” Trump said. “I really probably never will,” he added.
“John McCain received a fake and phony dossier,” Trump continued. “It was paid for by crooked Hillary Clinton. He got it. He didn’t give it to me, he turned it over to the FBI,” Trump said.
“I’m a very loyal person,” the President added.
He went on, lashing out at McCain for his vote to not overturn the Affordable Care Act and his role in wars in the Middle East.
He also took credit for McCain’s funeral, which he was not invited to.
“I gave John McCain the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president, I had to approve,” Trump said.
“I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you — that’s okay. We sent him on the way. But I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.”

‘Reprehensible’ cops fired for reenacting chokehold at memorial site: ‘A crime against humanity and decency’
Four former police officers are out of work over "reprehensible" photos taken at a memorial site where a 23-year-old Black man was killed by police while walking home.
"Aurora’s interim police chief on Friday fired two of the three officers who posed for a photo last October reenacting a chokehold at the site of Elijah McClain’s violent arrest — the third officer already had resigned — and terminated another officer who received the photo," The Denver Post reported Friday. "That officer, Jason Rosenblatt, was one of the three officers involved in McClain’s death last summer."
