Donald Trump has denied allegations that the USS John McCain & # 39; is out of sight & # 39; wanted to have during his visit to Japan, saying that he & # 39; was not aware of anything related to the ship & # 39 ;.
The navy is said to have covered the ship's name with a tarpaulin prior to the voyage, with all sailors wearing the hat bearing the name of the deceased senator in relief, the day off before the president's visit, according to reports.
But Trump 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;
Donald Trump has denied the USS John McCain & # 39; out of sight & # 39; wanted to have during his visit to Japan
The President tweeted Wednesday: & # 39; I was unaware of anything related to the Navy Ship USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan & # 39;
An email seen through The Wall Street Journal and sent to US Navy officials and Air Force from an American Indo-Pacific Command Officer would have read: & # 39; USS John McCain must be out of sight. & # 39;
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;
Images seem to show a sailcloth that names the ship after the war hero in Vietnam, because a collision in 2017 made it harder to move.
A barge would also have covered the name and during Trump's visit, sailors would have been given the day off.
In a furious tweet referring to the allegations, Meghan McCain called the president a & # 39; child & # 39; that her deceased father does not rest in peace.
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;

Trump had a rocky relationship with McCain, who died last year.
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.
Why was the USS John S. McCain in Japan?
The USS John S. McCain was involved in a collision with an oil tanker in 2017, killing ten sailors.
The ships crashed into each other during the hours of August 21, 2017 in the busy shipping lanes around the Strait of Malacca. There were no casualties among the tanker's crew.
The collision caused the tanker to tear through the hull, creating a hole that flooded the berths of the crew and the machines and communication rooms.
It is currently stationed at the Yokosuka Naval Base, south of Tokyo, which is being repaired.
The fallen men ranged in age from 22-39, and greeted from eight US states – Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas.
Trump has repeatedly shocked his late arch enemy to force McCain's youngest daughter, Bridget, 27, to make a rare public statement in defense of her deceased father.
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; you could not count on being 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 during the war for five and a half years, the kind of funeral he wanted. & # 39;
& # 39; I supported him at his request and I gave him the kind of funeral he wanted, which I had to approve as president. I don't care, I haven't received a thank you. Which is good. We sent him on the way. But I wasn't a John McCain fan, & said Trump.
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.
McCain's beef with President Trump goes back at least to the 2016 presidential campaign, when Trump criticized him for being imprisoned in Vietnam.
& # 39; He is not a war hero & # 39 ;, Trump said in July 2015, sarcastically said: & # 39; He is a war hero because he was captured. & # 39;
He then added: & # 39; I love people who are not committed. & # 39;
The president spoke with the armed soldier aboard the USS Wasp as part of Memorial Day.
The White House would have refused to comment on the allegations.

December 22, 2015: McCain says he & # 39; worried & # 39; is about Trump's praise to Russian President Vladimir Putin. & # 39; The thing that is so disturbing about Mr. Trump's compliments for Vladimir Putin is that Vladimir Putin massacred his own people, killed his own people, including people I knew.

I hope the Americans understand that the comments are not the opinion of our Republican party, its officers or candidates. & # 39;
October 8, 2016: Images have appeared showing that Trump made the wrong women's commentary in 2005.

December 29, 2016: McCain employee David Kramer, a manager of the McCain Institute, met BuzzFeed reporter Ken Bensinger and passed the & # 39; dirty file & # 39; from British ex-spy Christopher Steele. Buzzfeed published the file two weeks later.
