How much does Donald Trump dislike John McCain? Apparently enough for someone to request the Navy hide the warship named for the late senator so it wouldn’t appear in any photos during Trump’s visit to Japan, officials in the military and the White House said Wednesday.
Officials with the Navy are denying they hid the ship, known as the USS John S. McCain, but sailors who are stationed on the vessel were given Tuesday off when Trump was visiting the Yokosuka Naval Base.
According to two sailors who spoke anonymously, sailors from the McCain ship didn’t receive an invite to see Trump speak, while sailors from the other U.S. ships at the base did get the invite. (The New York Times)
