Trump claimed the Dossier is "fake and totally discredited" - even though much of it has been proven accurate while none of it has been discredited.

Meghan stood up for her father, writing: 'No one will ever love you the way they loved my father.... Trump denies this. Some of the allegations were contained in a dossier that was extremely salacious and never verified publicly.

President Donald Trump took posthumous aim at former Sen.

Numerous allegations in the contentious "Steele dossier" on the Trump campaign's alleged Russian ties have since been proven at least partially accurate, but its most salacious claims remain unverified. BuzzFeed then published the dossier in full, following CNN reports that President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump had been briefed about it. McCain was only a war hero "because he was captured", Trump famously declared at a conservative conference, adding "I like people who weren't captured". "He had far worse 'stains" including thumbs down [voting against] on repeal and replace after many years of campaigning to repeal and replace!' the Commander-in-Chief's post reads. Mr. Trump tweeted Sunday.

On Saturday, the View co-host replied to a tweet in which the president not only mentioned the controversial dossier, but also the senator's 2017 deciding vote against the Republican plan to repeal and replace most of the Affordable Care Act. "I think that part of the reason he does it is obviously he has all his issues with McCain, but it's also a chance for him to assert his dominance over the Republican Party". McCain, a member of the Naval Academy's class of 1958, graduated fifth from last in his class. "Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?"

Trump was responding to new revelations linking McCain to the dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele that contained unsubstantiated claims about the president and the Russians.

Trump, who bypassed military service himself, had only words of contempt for the senator who he famously dismissed as "not a war hero" on the grounds he was taken prisoner in Vietnam. Graham was a close friend of McCain but he has in recent months worked closely with Trump.
