President Donald Trump's eldest son, Don Jr., appeared with girlfriend and political analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle on The View to promote his new book, Triggered, but a number of tense moments during the show upstaged it.

Though the prince of trolling did his best to turn the entire panel into a YouTube comments section, cohost Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), confronted Junior about his attacks on the Khans, a Muslim Gold Star family whose speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 sparked attacks from the Trump family.

The Iowa State Fair is a mainstay for presidential candidates vying for favor among the swing state's undecided voters. This year is no different.

Candidates seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination descended on Iowa this past weekend to eat fair food, speak with voters, and address fairgoers in "soapbox" speeches.

In 2015, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-NC) was clear on how he felt about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"He's a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot," Graham said. "He doesn't represent my party. He doesn't represents the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for."

President Donald Trump's ire for the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has been well-documented. On the campaign trail, Trump questioned why the former prisoner of war was described as a war hero and McCain railed against Trump for siding with Russian president Vladimir Putin at a press conference in Helsinki.

Trump's bitterness against McCain reached new debts, however, when McCain famously voted no on Trump's overhaul of the Affordable Care Act. The legislation failed, humiliating Trump.

Since before the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain, singlehandedly foiled President Donald Trump's efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement, Trump has held a grudge.

As recently as two weeks ago, evidence surfaced that the White House made a concentrated effort to keep the USS John McCain out of Trump's sight during his visit to Japan.

President Donald Trump proclaimed Tuesday as National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day and his announcement is earning fierce ridicule because of his treatment of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ).

"We honor the Americans captured and imprisoned by foreign powers while carrying out their duties to defend this great Nation," Trump wrote in a statement. "As a Nation, we must never forget or take for granted the traumatic ordeals of our former POWs.  With honor and valor, they served to keep our country safe, and they stayed the course — despite conditions that were often harsh and agonizing."

During an appearance at a General Dynamics tank factory in Lima, Ohio, earlier this week, President Donald Trump took aim at John McCain again, saying he “didn’t get the job done” for veterans. He also complained that he did not receive gratitude for giving McCain "the kind of funeral he wanted" last September.

“I gave him the kind of funeral he wanted, which as president I had to approve,” Trump said. “I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank-you, that’s okay. We sent him on the way. But I wasn’t a fan of John McCain. I have to be honest, I never liked him much. Hasn’t been for me. I’ve really, probably, never will.”
