Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) appeared Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and addressed President Trump’s assertion that he would be honored to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“I don’t understand it,” McCain said to hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “And I don’t think the president appreciates the fact that, when he says things like that, it helps the credibility and the prestige of this really outrageous strongman.”
“You know, the largest gulag left on earth is in North Korea and we all know about their human rights abuses and others.”
McCain also cited his history as a self-proclaimed Reagan Republican, and said, “One thing that Reagan did was he praised people who stood up against dictatorships.”
