Meghan McCain has President Trump a & # 39; child & # 39; in connection with claims that he had ordered a ship with the name that her father & # 39; out of sight & # 39; was held during a visit to Japan.
The USS John S. McCain was claimed to have been kept away from Trump when he visited US and Japanese troops in Yokosuka on Tuesday.
An alleged White House command saw the navy cover the ship's name with a tarpaulin and sailors wore uniforms with the ship's logo on the day off so that the president would not see any references to the deceased senator.
Trump denied the claim that he was "unaware of anything that had to do with the ship".
But in a tweet, Meghan McCain labeled the president a & # 39; child & # 39; that her & # 39; sadness is unbearable & # 39; made.

She wrote: & # 39; Trump is a child who will always be deeply threatened by the grandeur of my father's incredible life.
& # 39; There is a lot of criticism of how much I am talking about my father, but nine months after he passed, Trump did not let him RIP. So I have to stand up for him. It makes my grief unbearable. & # 39;
An e-mail sent to US Navy and air force officials from an American Indo-Pacific command officer, & # 39; USS He believes John McCain should be out of sight & # 39; The Wall Street Journal.
The official would have added: & # 39; Confirm that # 3 will be satisfied. & # 39;
The note contained plans for the president's arrival and was the result of talks between the White House military office and the seventh US Navy fleet, according to the newspaper.
The official said he would talk to the White House military office to get more information about the directive when a Navy commander expressed surprise, the report said.
It is said that he has answered: & # 39; First I heard it too. & # 39;

The president tweeted on Wednesday had & # 39; nothing to do with & # 39; the USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan
Images seem to show the name of the ship, originally named after the father of the father of the Vietnam war hero, covered by a sheet.
A barge would also have covered the name and during Trump's visit, sailors would have been given the day off.
Navy officials said the ship was not moved to cover the ship's name.
The ship is based in Yokosuka after a collision in 2017 made it difficult to get out of the harbor.
Trump personally denied giving the order to keep the ship out of sight and to disguise its name.
He tweeted on Wednesday: & # 39; I was not aware of anything related to the Navy Ship USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan.
& # 39; Nevertheless, @FLOTUS and I loved being with our great Military Men and Women – what a spectacular task they do! & # 39;
Acting Secretary of Defense Pat Shanahan was reportedly aware of the issue of the USS John McCain in Japan and adopted measures to prevent it from hampering Trump's visit.

Trump had a rocky relationship with McCain, who died last year.
Over the years, Republican partners clashed with policy differences back in 1999, exchanging regularly with each other.
In March the president called on him & # 39; terrible & # 39; after the two daughters of the deceased senator begged the president to leave their father and family alone.
& # 39; I am not a fan. He was terrible what he did with withdrawal and replacement. What he did with the Republican Party and the nation, and with sick people who had had great health care, was not right. So I'm not a John McCain fan and that's fine, & Trump told Fox Business Network.

At the start of the Trump presidential campaign in July 2015, Trump said McCain was not a war hero because he was imprisoned and added: & # 39; I love people who are not committed & # 39 ;.
McCain was detained in a North Vietnamese prison for five and a half years and was tortured repeatedly.
But the Arizona senator still supported Trump's presidential campaign until a leaked bond emerged from bragging about the sexual abuse of women.
Once in the White House, Trump then attacked McCain for his decisive vote against a Republican bill repealing the Affordable Care Act – known as Obamacare.
The president was also confronted with criticism in the aftermath of McCain's death because, just hours after McCain's death, he only issued a brief condolence and rejected an official White House statement in which he praised the long-running politician who served six terms in his home state of Arizona.
Trump has repeatedly shocked his late arch enemy, forcing McCain & # 39; s youngest daughter Bridget, 27, to make a rare public statement in defense of her late father in March.
She beat President Trump in the process and called him a & # 39; child & # 39; and said he was not invited to the senator's funeral because & # 39; could not be counted on to be courteous & # 39 ;.
Trump had complained during a visit to a factory in Ohio that he was not thanked for giving McCain, who was held in a Hanoi prisoner of war camp for five and a half years during the war, & # 39; the kind of funeral he wanted & # 39 ;.
The president was criticized after McCain's death for not having let the flag fly in the White House with half staff. It was eventually lowered and remained so until McCain was buried.
He was not invited to the funeral at the request of the deceased senator. The former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush have spoken the praises. A lot of political VIP's – Bill and Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney and others – were present.
