Hero Summit

McCain: Obama Mishandled Egypt

Sen. John McCain spoke Thursday at The Daily Beast’s Hero Summit, where he said that Obama’s foreign policy is in large part to blame for Egypt’s downward path to insurgency and terrorism. During an interview with editor in chief Tina Brown, McCain asked: “We’re going to suspend some aid, but not other aid. What is the message to [Egyptian] General [Abdul Fattah] al-Sisi? ... We should abide by our rule of law. But we didn’t do that.” McCain further emphasized that the shutdown is negatively impacting people’s confidence in the government, which could have long-term consequences.
