John McCain Calls Australian Ambassador After Trump Call

mccA senior Senate Republican is seeking to assure Australia the U.S. remains a staunch ally following a tense discussion between President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona says in a statement that he spoke Thursday morning with Joe Hockey, Australia’s ambassador to the United States.

McCain says he expressed to Hockey his “unwavering support for the U.S.-Australia alliance.”

He says Australia is an important military partner and there is a “deepening cooperation” between the two countries. McCain is the chairman of the Armed Services Committee.

The White House says Trump was “very strong” in his recent call with Turnbull over an Obama administration deal that would allow mostly Muslim refugees rejected by Australia to be resettled in the United States.

  2. Hey John, you’re NOT the President! You had your chance in 08 but you folded like a cheap camera and threw the elections because you were petrified of being called the dreaded “racist” word by the fake news media. L O S E R. No one asked you to embark on an apology tour. Her` Obama just did that for the last 8 years. We have a new leader in control. If you don’t like it, you can always retire, save us taxpayers your salary, and join your master, Obama, on the golf course.
