WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has attacked John McCain for the third day this week, claiming in an interview set to air Friday that the deceased senator inappropriately shared information with the FBI.

“John McCain … gave it to the FBI for very evil purposes,” Trump told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “That’s not good.”

Trump was referring to an unverified dossier suggesting improper ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

McCain received the dossier after the 2016 election and provided it to the FBI, according to testimony from an associate of the late senator from Arizona.

Trump has falsely claimed that this was done before the election and before the FBI began investigating his campaign.

The president’s ongoing comments on McCain, who died last August at age 81, has drawn criticism from the senator’s family and former colleagues.

Trump posted multiple tweets disparaging McCain on Saturday. When a reporter asked why, on Monday, Trump said he was not a “fan” of the senator.

On Wednesday, Trump made extended remarks criticizing the iconic Republican during remarks at a tank manufacturing plant in Lima, Ohio.

“I gave him the funeral he wanted, which as president I had to approve,” Trump said. “I don’t care about this. I didn’t get a thank you. That’s okay. We sent him on the way. But I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.”

As McCain battled brain cancer, he made it known that Trump would not be welcome at his funeral.

According to the transcript from Friday’s upcoming interview, Trump said he continued to discuss McCain because the media kept asking him about it.

His rant on Wednesday, however, was unprompted and a full day after he had faced a question on the matter.

    1. As always trump is projecting. Of course he himself is the evil one. He claims to be defending Christianity but he is the one taking Christian immigrant babies from their heart broken mothers and throwing them into wire camp’s. The very definition of anti christ behavior. Thousands of missing Christian children, many more sexually assaulted. The defender of Christianity? Or Lucifer? Trumps biggest problem is that there are 2.5 billion Christians that don’t like Christian babies ripped from their mommy’s and thrown into wire camp’s. Deep down all Christians know that isn’t Jesus’ message. Sincerely Albertino, the protect our Christian brothers and sisters movement. P.s. we support every one regardless of race or religion, everyone!!!! We also believe Michael Cohen is both a Christian and a Jewish hero. Christian because he stands against this Christian persecution . Jewish because he dispels the libel that Jewish folks are somehow against Christians ( from the Jews will not replace us crowd) We also believe democrats need to grow a pair and defend our Christian immigrants by name, as in stop attacking Christians it’s anti christ behavior. This would spook trump evangelicals. Trump and pence are leading them into the darkness of hate and lies and probably hell. If they believe that Jesus is telling them to throw Christians into wire camp’s, then they need an exorcism!!!!
