Schumer Calls For Naming Senate Building For McCain

The Hill reports:

Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that he will introduce a resolution to rename the Russell Senate Office building after Sen. John McCain amid a growing backlash against President Trump’s recent comments about the late Arizona Republican.

Trump, while speaking at the White House on Tuesday, said he “was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be.” Trump’s criticism of McCain has drawn backlash from senators, including Schumer and GOP Sens. Johnny Isakson (Ga.) and Mitt Romney (Utah). Schumer, speaking to a New York radio station, called it “awful.”
