Sen. John McCain of Arizona has said that U.S. leadership was better under President Barack Obama than his successor, President Trump, The Guardian reported Sunday.

The Republican leader, who has never shied away from criticizing Mr. Trump, was responding to a question asking if America’s stance on the global stage was better during the Obama administration.

“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes,” McCain responded.

McCain, the chairman on the Senate Armed Services Committee, lost to Obama in the 2008 presidential election and was highly critical of his administration’s foreign policy agenda.

The U.K. newspaper described the 80-year-old senator as “visibly irked” when he was asked about Mr. Trump’s tweets criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan, which came shortly after a terror attack that left eight dead and dozens injured.
