Meghan McCain has frequently spoken out against Trump, especially in response to his repeated criticisms of her father, who died from brain cancer in 2018. 

Trump notably mocked the former GOP presidential nominee on the campaign trail in 2015, saying people think the Arizona lawmaker “was a war hero because he was captured” and that “I like people who weren’t captured.”

The late senator spent 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war while serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War.

Trump has repeatedly come under fire for mocking John McCain since, including after his death.

Both Meghan McCain and Cindy McCain, the late senator's wife, celebrated Biden's win in the 2020 presidential race. Cindy McCain helped campaign for Biden earlier this year.
