Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain said other countries are likely questioning whether the U.S. is a committed ally due to President Donald Trump’s approach to foreign policy, during an international economic and policy conference in Lake Como, Italy, Saturday.

McCain stressed he is committed to keeping alliances intact, arguing the relationships between the U.S. and European countries are vital to protecting their security interests.

“I realize that I come to Italy at a time when many are questioning whether America is still committed to remaining engaged in the world, to upholding our traditional alliances and standing up for the values we share,” he said. “I also realize—and there is no point in avoiding a little straight talk here—that this doubt has much to do with some of the actions and statements of our President.”

The senator he is committed to fighting to make sure America remains a “principled leader in the world.” McCain said there is bipartisan support to push for “pro-alliances, pro-trade, pro-investment, pro-military, pro-globalization, in favor of an internationalist foreign policy, and supportive of our transatlantic alliance.” He called on other countries to continue to work with the U.S.

“We need your help, my friends. Now more than ever, we Americans are counting on Italy and our other European allies to stick with us … to encourage us to stay true to who we are at our best … and to remind us always just how much is at stake,” he said. “It may not look that way on Twitter, but that is what opinion polls clearly show, time after time after time.”

    I can’t wait for Satan to call this turd home. I think upon his demise, we should have a celebratory parade to recognize the removal of evil.

    It seems strange to have politicians vow in the presence of the Lord to serve the country best of their ability,undivided loyalty,upright in thought word and deed,caring,trustworthy,dependable, as one would rightly expect for the country to be run in a responsible manner. Much to one’s surprise, this is not the case, they are not there for the country’s benefit that doesn’t come into the equation, but for all the personal gain to be had,and personal vendetta as seen with McCain,and others. Warped politician shame their country,how do foreign politicians rate bribed judges by politicians? And shamelessly boasting the many millions acquired from nowhere,owning dining tables costing over a million, could they not have acquired a Louis XV for half that amount and given the rest to the homeless that walk the streets.A bit daunting to think of grownup men and women with limited views and priorities, exhibiting childish mentality by evading truths,and stop transparent lies, childlike thinking they can fool the country and all other countries, all they do is let themselves down through lack no self respect, trashy dignity, degrading their fathers land, just a mass of low lives.
    HAVE NO CALL TO CRITICIZE THE PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO IS GLORIOUSLY ADMIRED BY MANY RESPECTFUL POLITICIANS AROUND THE GLOBE. GOD BLESS Donald TRUMP AND HIS NEAREST AND DEAREST.

    It’s clear this mans brain is not working right. He jumps at every chance to cut our president down. He needs to resign because his brain is eat-up with cancer and is rotting. He keeps hanging on because he knows when he does die, Satin and Hell are waiting for him. SCARY….
