John McCain, the Republican U.S. senator gave interview for Fox News where he slammed President Donald Trump for his recent justifying statements about Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

During his speech at the Senate, McCain referred to Putin as ‘a butcher and a thug, a KGB colonel’ who has nothing to do with the USA, ‘the country that Ronald Reagan used to call a shining city on a hill’.

‘To allege some kind of moral equivalence between the two is either terribly misinformed or incredibly biased. Neither can be accurate in any way,’ the politician said.

Earlier, a Fox News journalist who interviewed President Donald Trump referred to Russian leader Putin as a killer. 'We have a lot of killers. You think our country is so innocent?', Trump replied.
