Senator John McCain made some scandalous statements during his latest speech in which he condemns the ‘America First’ policy of President Donald Trump. He also said some things that will make many right-winged Americans angry. Senator McCain is slowly, but surely swinging. He thinks nationalism is bad.
During a speech, John McCain warns too much “nationalism” is a bad thing. McCain thinks President Trump’s “America First” agenda is dangerous and fake.
(CNN) In a lofty and at moments pointed speech, Sen. John McCain on Monday cautioned against the US turning toward “half-baked, spurious nationalism” during an event honoring the war hero’s contributions.Reflecting on his decades-long political history, McCain warned that to “fear” the world the US has led for the better part of a century, “abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe” and “refuse the obligations of international leadership … for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems” is unpatriotic.
“As unpatriotic,” he continued, “as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
The remarks came after McCain was honored with the Liberty Medal by the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, months after being diagnosed in July with an aggressive form of brain cancer.
