McCain: American president does not lead Free World by congratulating dictators like Putin

U.S. Sen. John McCain released the following statement Tuesday on President Donald Trump congratulating Vladimir Putin on his "election" victory:

"An American president does not lead the Free World by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections. And by doing so with Vladimir Putin, President Trump insulted every Russian citizen who was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election to determine their country's future, including the countless Russian patriots who have risked so much to protest and resist Putin's regime."

John McCain is a Republican Senator from Arizona.
