On Friday, in a Washington Post op-ed, Sen. John McCain urged colleagues to defect from President Donald Trump in an effort to “identify as members of Congress more than our partisan affiliation.”
“We must, where we can, cooperate with [President Trump]. But we are not his subordinates. We don’t answer to him. We answer to the American people.”
But that’s just the problem that McCain doesn’t seem to understand.
President Donald Trump represents the American people in their entirety — McCain represents his established voter base in Arizona, not all of the United States.
That’s exactly why McCain must follow in lockstep with everything Trump wants to accomplish — because the will of the American people is behind his every move.
On the U.S. government, he said he following: “It relies on compromise between opposing sides to protect the interests we share. We can fight like hell for our ideas to prevail. But we have to respect each other or at least respect the fact that we need each other.”
