Arizona Sen. John McCain is once again publicly disagreeing with one of President Donald Trump’s decisions. McCain pushed back Saturday night against Trump’s reversal of an agreement to sign onto a statement by the G7 countries.

Trump tweeted Saturday night that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was meek and mild after Trudeau announced a joint communique by all seven countries, indicating that the United States had signed on. Trump then reversed the decision to join.

Sen. McCain then tweeted: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't."

He said bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values.
