John McCain: US Must Suspend Aid to Egypt
In a definite sign that it would be a very bad idea for the US to suspend aid to Egypt, John McCain calls for the US to suspend aid to Egypt.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called the ouster of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi a coup d’etat and pressed the Obama administration to suspend aid to the country on Sunday.
“It was a coup and it was the second time in two and a half years that we have seen the military step in,” McCain said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“Reluctantly I believe that we have to suspend aid until such time as there is a new constitution and a free and fair election,” McCain added. …
“Morsi was a terrible president, their economy is in terrible shape thanks to their policies but the fact is the United States should not be supporting this coup. And it’s a tough call,” McCain added.
