On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter and slammed McCain over the Russia dossier and Obamacare repeal vote.

The late senator's daughter, Meghan McCain, promptly fired back at the president. "No one will ever love you the way they loved my father.... I wish I had been given more Saturday's with him," she tweeted. "Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?" After John McCain gave a deciding "no" vote on the GOP's effort to overhaul Obamacare in 2017, Trump repeatedly criticized him, even while he was battling brain cancer. Cindy McCain, John McCain's wife, told the BBC late last year that Trump's attacks on her husband are something she may never get over.
