Cindy McCain became the latest high profile Republican to openly rebuke President Trump on Monday, revealing she plans to cross party lines to support Joe Biden's bid for the White House.
McCain cited the decades-long friendship between her family and Biden's as well as their bond as the parents of children who have served in the military.
“He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served,” McCain told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Tuesday. “Not only to love someone who has served, but understands what it means to send a child into combat. We’ve been great friends for many years, but we have a common thread in that we are Blue Star families.”
