McCain: US Going Through 'Period of Turmoil Politically'

McCain: US Going Through 'Period of Turmoil Politically'

By    |   Thursday, 02 November 2017 04:16 PM

The United States is in a phase similar to the 1930s, according to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

"We are going through a period of turmoil politically, obviously. We are seeing in many ways, the 1930s: the isolationism, the America-firsters. Now, maybe some of the causes are different, but the fact is we are seeing the United States become much more insular and inward," McCain said in an interview with Tom Brokaw that aired Thursday on NBC’s "Today" show.

The senator pointed out that he believes in the importance of the press. “The role of the press is more important than ever before. I hate the press, OK? But the fact is, without a free press in this country, a pillar of democracy is destroyed,” McCain said in the interview.

When asked what advice he would give President Donald Trump, McCain said “stop tweeting.”

Trump should also ease off his attacks on members of his party, according to the senator.

"There’s no reason to attack Republicans. We’ve got enough people to attack them," McCain said in the "Today" interview.

On Tuesday, McCain weighed in on Robert Mueller’s probe, saying, "I guarantee you more shoes will drop."
