Coats: McCain is an American hero, period

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement regarding comments made by Donald Trump about the military service of Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.):

“John McCain endured over five years in a Vietnamese prison camp in service to the country he loves. He turned down early release and still bears scars from the misery he suffered. Senator McCain is an American hero, period.

“In one of his books, Donald Trump writes, ‘If you stay silent, people will eventually make fools of themselves without your help at all.’ While candor is refreshing, The Donald’s bombastic comments about Senator McCain reveal what he is really all about: The Donald.”
