Hawkish senator cheers neocon shift, says president ‘is growing and he is listening’
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd that he “hoped” President Donald Trump was being drawn into the so-called “Washington establishment” during an interview Sunday.
Ever since Trump ordered an airstrike in Syria in retaliation for the chemical attack that killed more than 80 Syrian civilians earlier in April, he has received increasing praise from the neoconservative wing of the Republican Party.
McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), frequent critics of the president, both cheered the action against the Syrian regime and have called for expanded U.S. intervention in the messy Syrian conflict.
