McCain: Obama is a Better President Than Trump
Barack Obama is a much better president than Donald Trump will ever hope to be. To anyone who has followed politics and world affairs this past eight years, this is probably not a surprise.
Most people know that America enjoyed an unprecedented scandal-free eight years of peace, economic growth and global respect under President Barack Obama, unlike what we are seeing now from Donald Trump.
Well, it appears Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has finally discovered this.
The senator said over the weekend that America’s leadership around the world was “stronger” under President Obama.
Asked by British newspaper, The Guardian, if America stood on firmer ground under President Obama’s leadership, McCain answered with a firm “yes.”
“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes,” said McCain. He then went on to criticize President Obama’s leadership, as expected.

Sen. McCain was also asked what message Trump delivered to Britain and the rest of the world last week when he went on an ill-informed Twitter tirade criticizing London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan.
“What do you think the message is?” McCain fired back. “The message is that America doesn’t want to lead,” added McCain who is the chairman on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
“They are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica,” he added.
Trump recently went on Twitter to blast London Mayor Sadiq Khan for telling Londoners not to be alarmed by the increased police presence on the streets following weekend London terrorists attacks.
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his “no reason to be alarmed” statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!

It turned out that was not what Mayor Khan said. He was simply telling Londoners to go about their normal business and not be alarmed by the presence of police office.
Either Trump did not understand what Mayor Khan, a Muslim was saying or he just chose to take it out of context. Either way, Trump damaged his reputation in the process.
Sen. John McCain was the GOP candidate for president in 2008 but he lost to President Barack Obama by over nine million votes.
Recent media reports say Trump has delayed his official visit to United Kingdom for fear of potential massive protests. The White House later denied the reports.
