"McCain, Senate Armed Services Chair, and Graham, Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, will discuss key issues facing the country including America’s place on the world stage, U.S. Russian policy, immigration and other national security issues facing Americans at home," the network said in its announcement.

McCain has been particularly critical of Trump in recent days, with the 2008 GOP nominee telling NBC's Chuck Todd last week that the president's attempt of "suppressing free press" is "how dictators get started."
