A mystery continues to surround it, according to U.S. military E-Mail, that is, for the USS John S. McCain “out of sight”, while President Trump stationed recent visit of U.S. troops in Japan, where the ship was docked.

On Wednesday, both President Trump and acting Minister of defence, Patrick Shanahan to denied any knowledge of what the ship carried the name of the first is covered with a tarpaulin and then covered with a color, the barge in front of Trump’s visit over the Memorial Day weekend.

“I was not informed about everything that wrote in the Navy, USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan,” the President Trump on Twitter late Wednesday. “Anyway, @FLOTUS, and I loved it, with our great military men and women – what a spectacular work you’re doing!”


A spokesman for the Secretary Shanahan later made the following statement: “Secretary Shanahan was not move, aware of the Directive, the USS John S McCain, nor was he aware of the concern of a default, the policy.”

“Secretary Shanahan was not move, aware of the Directive, the USS John S McCain, nor was he aware of the concern of a default, the policy.”

Statement from the office of Patrick Shanahan, acting secretary of defense

This statement seemed to contradict a Wall Street Journal story, which cited unnamed U.S. officials to say that Shanahan was “aware of the concern about the presence of the USS John McCain in Japan, and approved measures to ensure that it did not interfere with the President’s visit.”


The existence of the E-Mail sent by an unnamed US-Indo-Pacific Command official U.S. Navy and Air Force-officials – was for the first time, the magazine reported. The newspaper is history, claims that the orders under reference to the USS John S. McCain comes from “the White house”, but named no specific officials.

The ship is named after the father and grandfather of the late U.S. Senator John S. McCain III, President Trump had feuded in front of the Arizona Republican death from cancer last year at the age of 81.

The emergence of the magazine’s history, apparently angry Meghan McCain, daughter of the late senator and co-host of ABC’s “The View” – which, like her deceased father, is more likely to Trump the critics.


In a tweet Wednesday in front of the Embassy of the President, Meghan McCain, appeared to disguise the order, Trump’s name came from the President.

Meghan McCain, the Journal have retweeted history, add the following comment: “trump is a child, the always deeply threatened by the size of my dad’s [sic] incredible life. There is a lot of criticism of how much I talk about my father, but it’s been nine months since he died, is not the Trump to Rip him apart. So I have to stand up for him. It makes my pain unbearable.”

Since McCain is the death of the late senator, the 34-year-old daughter was quick to defend his legacy. Only two days ago, Meghan McCain, her anger is directed at Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., a candidate for the 2020 Democratic party presidential nomination.

Klobuchar claimed recently that the late senator “recite to me the names of the dictators” during the term of office of the President of Trump’s speech in the year of 2017, suggesting the commencement, that the elder McCain was afraid of the idea of a trump presidency.

President Trump has feuded with both Sen. John McCain, who died last year, and his daughter Meghan McCain.

But Meghan McCain said she and her family would prefer it if the late senator’s name was not called during the 2020 election campaign.


“On behalf of the entire family of McCain, [Amy Klobuchar] please take consideration for all of us and let my father’s legacy and the memory of the President’s policy,” the late senator’s daughter wrote.

Ultimately, the magazine reported, has eclipsed the tarpaulin, which was removed with the name of the USS John S. McCain Saturday, and the color of the barge, the name was removed – both in front of Trump’s visit, Cmdr. Clayton Doss, a spokesman for the Navy’s Seventh fleet, told the newspaper.

President Trump spoke to the Japan-based US troops on Tuesday, while on Board the USS Wasp, which was docked on the same base as the USS John S. McCain.
