Though Trump did not mention McCain by name, he has attacked the senator several times in recent weeks for his “no” on the GOP measure and has blamed McCain for the collapse of the Republican effort to repeal the act.

Trump at a GOP rally in Nevada said McCain went thumbs-down on the bill, a reference to McCain using the gesture to signify his vote.

"Nobody talked to him. Nobody needed to, and then he walked in: thumbs-down. It’s alright, because we’ve essentially gutted it anyway," Trump said of ObamaCare at the rally.

McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, has called the president’s mockery of her father “gross.” 

John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017, and has since undergone surgery and treatment. He has assumed a reduced role in the Senate since his diagnosis.
