McCain: Trump’s Rhetoric Turning Muslims Against the U.S.


Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rhetoric was turning Muslims “against the United States of America.”

McCain said, “As all of our candidates bloviate about the refugees, Bashar Assad is a major cause of the refugees which are now flooding Europe and causing such consternation in the United States.”

When asked specifically about Donald Trumps rhetoric McCain said, “I think it has an interesting effect of turning Muslims all over the world against the United States of America which is 99 and 44/100 percent of  people who practice honorable religion. By the way, the fact is that we can succeed here and ISIS is not that strong but the longer they say in power the more this poison spreads and metastasizes from as far away from Afghanistan, Africa, other parts of the world.”
