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.”
Sondland briefed Pompeo on Trump’s Ukraine scheme — and secretary of state signed off on it: report
President Donald Trump's ambassador to the European Union kept Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the loop on efforts to pressure Ukraine's president to announce an investigation of Joe Biden.
Gordon Sondland notified Pompeo in mid-August of a draft statement he'd produced with another U.S. diplomat and Ukrainian officials that they hoped would persuade Trump to invite Volodymyr Zelensky to the Oval Office, reported the New York Times.
He and Pompeo discussed later that month the possibility of pushing Zelensky to pledge during a planned meeting with Trump in Warsaw that he would pursue the investigation sought by the U.S. president in hopes of smoothing relations between the two countries, according to two sources who were briefed on the matter.
MSNBC’s Mika shocked by Morning Joe’s withering criticism of House GOP: ‘I’ve never heard you accuse someone of that’
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski was astonished by her co-host and husband Joe Scarborough's denunciation of congressional Republicans.
The "Morning Joe" hosts agreed GOP attacks on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who earned a Purple Heart fighting in the Iraq War, and other impeachment inquiry witnesses were shameful, but Scarborough went even further in his criticism.
"People talk about the time, 'It's a time we're in,' -- no, it's not," Scarborough said. "It's lack of character among people on these committees, just a lack of character and a lack of love of country that they put their political party above their country."
Sewer campus escape bid by Hong Kong protesters ends in arrest
Two pro-democracy protesters were arrested Wednesday as they emerged from a manhole on a Hong Kong road outside a besieged campus, in a thwarted escape bid from inside the university.
Two male protesters holed up in the campus for days were detained along with four people lowering ropes to help them out from the drainage system, police said.
They apparently crawled through fetid sewers to a manhole outside a housing estate around half a kilometre from city centre grounds of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), the scene of the dramatic siege by police.
The group were arrested for a range of offences including "taking part in a riot" and "assisting offenders", chief superintendent Ricky Ho told reporters late Wednesday.
