John McCain says Trump's debt deal with Democrats wasn't bipartisanship

U.S. Sen. Mc Cain says facing ‘very vicious form of cancer

"He served his country, and not always right".

Turning to his brain cancer prognosis, McCain was mostly optimistic.

Ever the maverick, McCain ruffled feathers within his party recently by casting one of the deciding Republican votes against repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, the landmark 2010 health care law known as "Obamacare". We have new technologies that I won't bother you with the details of that make chances better.

McCain continues to be an open critic of President Trump, including his decision to forge a three-month deal with Democrats over government funding and raising the debt ceiling, as well as for his action to end immigration protections for Dreamers and for his refusal to embrace climate change science.

"This was not an exercise in bipartisanship", McCain said.

McCain is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and he aims to spend the coming week shepherding the all-important defense spending bill through the chamber. "Under this agreement, they not only don't have everything they need, their lives are in greater danger".

He also said that the administration of President Donald Trump should start considering deploying nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula.

The 80-year-old was diagnosed with brain cancer in July after doctors discovered a brain tumor when the lawmaker underwent surgery to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "I've had no side effects. except, frankly, an increased level of energy", McCain said. "And, I'm very confident about getting through this one as well".

But, while he said he was receiving first-class medical treatment, he emphasized he did not want to paint a "rosy picture" for what he said is a tough form of cancer.

Tapper later asked the former Republican presidential candidate to reflect on his legacy.

"Last question for you, and, uh, I hope this is not our last interview", Tapper told McCain.
