“I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” she reportedly said. “He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.”

Before he died last year, John McCain was a frequent critic of Trump, while Trump has gone after the late senator on more than one occasion. 

Trump renewed his criticism in March, accusing John McCain of giving a dossier containing explosive claims about Trump’s ties to Russia to the FBI for “very evil purposes.” 

“I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be,” Trump told reporters at the time.
