John McCain says U.S. leadership was better under Obama

Senator John McCain reportedly said that the United States had better leadership under former president Barack Obama than it has under the current president, Donald Trump.

In speaking to The Guardian, McCain was asked if he thought that the United States had stood firm when Obama was at the helm, and his response was to say,  “As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.”

He was then asked about what message he thought was being sent to the United Kingdom and looked “visibly irked.”

Recently, Trump took shots at London Mayor Sadiq Khan after a terror attack in that city killed eight people. Trump claimed that Khan had told Londoners that there was “no reason to be alarmed,” but that was not the case. The quote was taken out of context and was in fact a plea for Londoners not to be alarmed at the increased police presence after the attack, not a statement that the attack was no cause for alarm, as Trump painted it out to be.

“What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead,” McCain said. “They are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.”
