The son of President Ronald Reagan told Newsmax TV on Monday that his father had a “wonderful relationship” with the late Sen. John McCain.
“They always had a wonderful relationship,” Michael Reagan told “America Talks Live” on Monday afternoon. “In fact, had my father listened to John McCain in 1983 there’d be two hundred and forty-three Marines still alive. He was the only person who stood up to my father and said, ‘don’t send the Marines to Lebanon, it will not work out well for you.’ My father didn’t listen to John McCain, but he never stopped listening after that.”
He added, “They had a great relationship, my dad had a lot of respect for John McCain.”
Reagan admitted that his father and McCain did have some “political battles,” but dismissed those problems as the “nature of the beast in Washington, D.C.,” and that, “doesn’t mean you lose respect for those around you.”

He also said that he found the president’s statement on McCain’s death “I mean that was the best Donald Trump could do. I mean if you really look at it, you have to remember where their relationship really started during the campaign of 2016…. And the fact that you have the President of the United States not referring to him as a hero, that he didn’t believe heroes were the ones who got captured. And he never stepped back from that, that’s the one Achilles heel of this president. He’s not humble, he’s not willing to step back and say, ‘you know something, I said something I shouldn’t have said I am so sorry.’”
