Trump has repeatedly hit John McCain, who often spoke out against Trump's policy positions after he entered the White House. Trump has most often attacked McCain for voting against repealing the Affordable Care Act. McCain's was the deciding vote against the GOP’s push to overhaul former President Obama's signature health care plan.

McCain died in 2018 at the age of 81 after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. 

Trump has been known for his frequent Twitter feuds and the use of the social media platform to attack his critics. The president has defended his actions on the platform, saying Twitter allows him to share his thoughts directly with people and not through the media.
