Pre-US Elections 2016 period has once again taken a surprising turn with Senator John McCain coming in complete support of Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump. McCain grabs a majority of National Rifle Association support.
The senator has held US President Barrack Obama responsible for the Orlando shooting massacre. Gunman Omar Mateen attacked a gay nightclub, Pulse, on Tuesday in Orlando that claimed the lives of almost 49 Americans. The incident has directly affected the United States elections as McCaine’s support has gone all Trump. “Barack Obama is directly responsible for it, because when he pulled everybody out of Iraq, al Qaeda went to Syria, became ISIS, and ISIS is what it is today thanks to Barack Obama’s failures,” Think Progress quoted McCain while he addressed a group of Washington reporters.
“[Obama] pulled everybody out of Iraq, and I predicted at the time that ISIS would go unchecked, and there would be attacks on the United States of America… It’s a matter of record, so he is directly responsible… The responsibility for it lies with President Barack Obama and his failed policies.”
Later the Senator released a statement and said that he “misspoke” while holding the president of the nation about the massacre. “I did not mean to imply that the President was personally responsible,” he said. “I was referring to President Obama’s national security decisions, not the President himself,” AZcentral.com quoted the senator as saying.
The Orlando shooting massacre unveils new chapter every day with surprising revelations. The latest report has revealed that shooter Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, received a text from husband asking whether she saw the news. The text was sent two hours following the commencement of the attack. Earlier, the shooter’s wife was under the microscope on suspicion that she knows about her husband’s intention but did not inform the police.
What will really be surprising is to see how intensively Orlando shooting massacre affects the position of the Democrats and benefits the Republicans in the US Elections 2016.
