Sen. John McCain ridiculed President Donald Trump in a CBS "60 Minutes" interview broadcast on Sunday, saying he was not going to spend his time trying to analyze what the president's plan is, because "he changes his statements almost on a daily basis."

The Arizona Republican made his comments in the context of discussing if he thought Trump was altering his strategy after striking a deal earlier this month with Democrats on short-term debt limit and federal spending.

But when asked if he thought Trump was fit for office, McCain was much more diplomatic, saying that "First of all, I believe in our system. The American people selected Donald Trump to be president of the United States. We have to respect that. Second of all, he has a very strong national security team around him who I know has significant influence over him."

McCain said that Trump has never apologized to him for saying that he's not a hero because he was captured in war and that he really does not expect a personal rapprochement with the president because they are such different people.

When asked what he meant by that, McCain said, "He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others. I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day."

Despite his battle with cancer, McCain said he is determined to keep working, saying, "I am more energetic and more engaged as a result of this because I know that I've got to do everything I can to serve this country while I can."
