McCain condemns Trump comments
by Rebecca Savransky
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Monday condemned Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's comments toward the family of Capt. Humayun Khan.
McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee who Trump mocked last summer for being captured during the Vietnam War, said he hoped voters would realize that Trump's comments did not reflect his party's views.
"In recent days, Donald Trump disparaged a fallen soldier's parents. He has suggested that the likes of their son should not be allowed in the United States — to say nothing of entering its service," McCain said in a statement.
