Shortly after Sen. John McCain passed away, scores of Conservative-minded Americans took to social media to denounce the late-senator’s history of working with Democrats, and his apparent anti-Trump stance.
McCain was a war hero and served his fellow Americans in the U.S. Congress, but that was not enough for Americans that feel he betrayed them with his past votes and for his open opposition to many Conservative principles.
Senator Marco Rubio, arguably one of the most pragmatic and Conservative members of the U.S. Senate, who has also been the target of many on the “Right” for his support of the “Gang of 8” immigration bill, and his sometimes opposition to Trump, is drafting a bill to honor his former colleague McCain.
Rubio has stated that he would like to see the new NATO headquarters named after McCain. Now Rubio is pushing his pen to help further that cause.
There was no greater support of @NATO than @SenJohnMcCain. I am drafting a Senate resolution supporting the naming of new #NATO HQ after him & calling on @USNATO to support this move. As McCain loved to say when asked why he held a certain position “it is the right thing to do”.
