President Donald Trump continued slamming the late Sen. John McCain Wednesday, saying he signed off on the former POW's funeral plans and never received a thank you — which Trump said was OK.

Trump brought up McCain, who died last August after a battle with brain cancer, during a speech at an Army tank-building plant in Lima, Ohio.

"I endorsed him at his request, and I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted. Which as president, I had to approve. I don't care about this, I didn't get a thank you, that's OK," Trump told the crowd.

"We've sent him on the way, but I wasn't a fan of John McCain. So now what we could say is now we're all set. I don't think I have to answer that question, but the press keeps [asking], 'What do you think of McCain, what do you think?' Not my kind of guy, but some people like him and I think that's great."

Trump and McCain feuded after then-candidate Trump questioned McCain's status as a war hero before the 2016 election. McCain cast the deciding vote that prevented the GOP from overturning Obamacare in 2017, and after McCain's death, there was a controversy surrounding the lowering of the White House flag.

Trump reignited his disdain for McCain last weekend and has kept up the assault this week.
