McCain reiterates he won't comment on Trump regarding his flag burning tweet

The two have a rocky history

Washington CNN  — 

Republican Sen. John McCain said he’s still done with questions about President-elect Donald Trump.

McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, was asked by CNN’s Manu Raju about Trump’s tweet about flag burning.

“I have not been commenting on Mr. Trump and I will continue not to comment on Mr. Trump,” McCain told Raju.

On Tuesday, Trump proposed a penalty – including possible jail time or loss of citizenship – for burning the American flag.
