PHOENIX (FOX 10/AP) - Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, shared a hateful message she received from a stranger on the same day that President Donald Trump disparaged her late husband.

McCain tweeted out a screenshot of the message on Tuesday, saying "I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be. I'm posting her note for her family and friends could see."
The same day, Trump declared at the White House that "I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be" while speaking about McCain's vote against repealing former President Barack Obama's healthcare law.
Trump drew criticism last weekend for tweeting insults about McCain who died last year of brain cancer.
Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson says that he's had enough of Trump's personal attacks on John McCain and that "the country deserves better."
The senator from Georgia is quoted as telling The Bulwark conservative news and opinion website that "nothing is more important than the integrity of the country and those who fought and risked their lives for all of us."
Trump targeted McCain during the 2016 presidential campaign, saying the former prisoner-of-war was not a hero. Trump received a series of deferments to avoid serving in Vietnam, including one attained with a physician's letter stating that he suffered from bone spurs in his feet.
