No one can accuse The Donald of NOT speaking his mind. And today, he’s going after John McCain. It would seem there is some bad blood between the two, and Trump lets loose, predicting McCain will lose his primary.
“They weren’t crazies — these were great Americans,” Trump responded on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“And when he calls them crazies, I think he will lose the primary,” he added. “I think he will lose the primary. If the right person runs against, they’ll beat him in the primary.”
State Sen. Kelli Ward announced on Tuesdayshe is McCain’s first Republican primary challenger. She promised immigration will be a major theme of her Senate campaign.
Trump said that, unlike McCain, he’s “a loyalist” who won’t back away from principals or allies.
“I’m a person who if someone sticks with me I’m with that person,” he said. “And John McCain was very disloyal to me.”
“I supported John McCain,” Trump added of the senator’s 2012 GOP presidential bid.
“He let us down because he lost, but you know it was a hard one after what happened with the economy.”
He also weighed in on the mass shooting in Chattanooga.
Trump also addressed Thursday’s mass shooting in Chattanooga, Tenn., calling on the military to reevaluate its policy on gun-free zones after four Marines died in the attack.
“We have to start doing something with these gun-free zones,” Trump said. “They were sitting there and they were just targets for this madman.”
Police confirmed the gunman’s identity on Thursday as Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, reportedly a naturalized citizen originally from Kuwait.
Trump expressed disbelief on Friday that no noticed any bizarre behavior from Abdulazeez before his attack.
“I can’t believe he was growing up in an area where people didn’t see him going off the wire,” he said.
“I expect you’ll see more and more of it,” Trump added of attacks like Chattanooga. “It’s a very tough situation for the country.”
