Donald Trump faces flak for dismissing John McCain’s war record

London, July 19 (ANI): American investor, television personality and Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has elicited widespread criticism for attacking Senator John McCain’s military record.

Trump said that McCain was only considered a hero because he was a prisoner of war, adding, “I like <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>people who weren’t captured,” reported the BBC.

The comments prompted a strong wave of criticism across the party. Rival contender Rick Perry termed the remarks a ‘new low’ in U.S. politics.

Former Florida Governor and Republican presidential hopeful, Jeb Bush, also blasted the <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>business magnate on Twitter saying, “Enough with the slanderous attacks”.

Later, Trump softened his <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>stance saying, “If a person is captured, they are a hero as far as I’m concerned.” However, he did not apologise. (ANI)
