President Trump tweeted: “I was never a big fan of John McCain, disagreed with him on many things including ridiculous endless wars and the lack of success he had in dealing with the VA and our great Vets, but the lowering of our Nations American Flags, and the first-class funeral he was given by our Country, had to be approved by me, as President, and I did so without hesitation or complaint.
“Quite the contrary, I felt it was well deserved.
“I even sent Air Force One to bring his body, in casket, from Arizona to Washington. It was my honor to do so.
“Also, I never called John a loser and swear on whatever, or whoever, I was asked to swear on, that I never called our great fallen soldiers anything other than HEROES.
“This is more made up Fake News given by disgusting & jealous failures in a disgraceful attempt to influence the 2020 election!”
