John McCain thinks America was better leader under abortion-obsessed Obama than Trump

June 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, thinks America's foreign policy under pro-abortion President Obama was better than it is under President Trump.

The Guardian reported that McCain said "as far as American leadership is concerned, yes," the country was better off under Obama than it is under Trump. 

The UK publication asked McCain for his thoughts on a negative tweet Trump had written about the mayor of London after the most recent terrorist attack there.

"What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead," McCain replied. The rest of the world is "not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica."

Shortly after taking office, Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which prevents U.S. funding of abortions and abortion promotion abroad. He's cut funding from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which cooperates with China's forced abortion regime (the money instead goes to the U.S. Agency for International Development account for "family planning and reproductive health"). 

Under Obama, the U.S. funded UNFPA. Obama rescinded the Mexico City Policy, which had been in place during the Bush administration.

It seems that Trump's foreign policy shows his willingness to lead when it comes to protecting the most basic of all human rights – the right to not be shredded, decapitated, or in any other way be killed in the womb. Does this count for nothing to McCain, who identifies as "pro-life"?
