Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he does not owe John McCain an apology for saying the Arizona senator is only a war hero “because he was captured”.
Trump told ABC’s “This Week” that he won’t be pulling out of the presidential race over his comments, which he made during a campaign event in Iowa. Trump said he left to a “standing ovation” after speaking at the Family Leadership Council summit.
When speaking about McCain, Trump said he likes “people who weren’t captured.” He didn’t back down when asked about that comment.
Did Donald Trump discredit himself with that comment?
