Sen. John McCain Sunday undercut President Trump with a tweet aimed at allies who are sore that Trump refused to sign the G-7 joint statement
To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.

Trump, in fact, is doing exactly the kind of thing he was elected to do.
But McCain knows something about public opinion. It’s what kept him out of the White House and put Trump in it.
