Meghan McCain said Friday she'll "never forgive" or move on from how President Donald Trump and his administration have treated her father, Sen. John McCain.

"His comments are never going to be okay with me, especially at this moment in my life," McCain, a panelist on ABC's "The View," said during an interview at the Lyndon B. Johnson presidential library in Austin, Texas, reports the Washington Examiner.

"I'm never going to forgive it," McCain added. "I'm never going to move on from it. But [at work] I'm a political commentator, and I'm trying to call balls and strikes as I see them."

She said she's also no longer taking calls from the White House after former special assistant Kelly Sadler didn't follow through with a public apology for making a joke about her father's cancer diagnosis.

"If anyone [from the White House] wants to say anything to me in any way, they have to do it publicly. I don't take private phone calls from the Trump Administration anymore," she added.

Earlier this year, Sadler reportedly commented during a meeting with White House communications staffers that Sen. McCain's vote to confirm Gina Haspel as Trump's nominee to head the CIA "doesn't matter, he's dying anyway." 

Sadler remained employed by the White House for almost a month after the incident.

"I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and then you could come to work the next day and still have a job," McCain said shortly after Sadler's remarks were reported. "That's all I have to say about it."

The president also came under fire during his campaign when he denied McCain, who spent years as a prisoner during the Vietnam War, was a hero because he'd been captured.

Meanwhile, the ailing senator has said he does not want Trump to attend his funeral services.
