In a new interview with the Washington Post, Cindy McCain accused President Trump of damaging the reputation of the United States.
“I was overseas at least once a month, if not more,” McCain recalled “I’d watch the demise of respect of our country around the globe, watch us leave our allies on the battlefield, watch us throw away our treaties, etc. You say, ‘Well, we’re better than that.’ But finally, there comes a time when there’s no explanation anymore, and that was very much the case with me.”
She added “There were so many people like my husband and so many millions of other people who served so nobly. And then to have it tossed away by someone who I don’t believe really understands what it means to serve.”
McCain also said she endorsed Biden after a story from “The Atlantic” relying on anonymous sources reported that Trump had said disparaging things about fallen soldier, a charge he denies.
The piece claimed the unnamed sources said Trump referred to American Marines who were killed at Belleau Wood during World War I as “suckers.”
Cindy McCain said “I thought, ‘My God, how could somebody say something like this about our young people who are willing to fight and die for this country without being asked?’ ”
“And somehow he thought that they were losers and suckers. And I’d listened to the rants against the Gold Star families, and each blow was a little worse than the last. That was all it took for me,” she added.
