Donald Trump does not owe him an apology for remarks disparaging his military service in Vietnam, Arizona Sen. John McCain said Monday. But he should apologize to others.

“But I think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience of serving their country,” McCain said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

McCain, a five-term senator who spent more than five years in the “Hanoi Hilton” as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, said he is used to barbs and rhetoric in the political arena.
