McCain Says Russia Is Bigger Threat Than Islamic State

McCain also expressed his unhappiness with reports about White House adviser Jared Kushner allegedly attempting to set up a back channel with Russian Federation, saying "I don't like it, I just don't".

Senator McCain warned Russian Federation was trying to influence elections around the world, even though he'd seen no evidence they succeeded.

After Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the Russian Federation investigation, a special counsel was tabbed to lead the investigation.

Putin, for his part, denied Moscow interfered in the election at all.

"I view the Russians as by far greatest challenge that we have", McCain declared.

McCain, the decorated war veteran, senior senator from Arizona and former Republican presidential candidate, said many of America's allies were fairly questioning the direction and reliability of Trump's administration.

His speech comes amid rising tensions in the region over North Korea's recent ballistic missile tests and ongoing worries about the build up of China's military presence in the South China Sea. The US has also been leading dozens of its allies in a coalition purportedly targeting Daesh positions in the Arab country.

During Mr McCain's visit, Australia announced an additional 30 troops will be sent to Afghanistan.

McCain said that he judges Trump by what he does rather than what he says and compared his record favourably with Barack Obama.

"We have not pursued a strategy for victory".

"I think the Europeans are legitimately concerned", Senator McCain said.

Meanwhile, he believes President Donald Trump's advisors have the capacity to achieve victory. "Yes, it bothers me", he said. "I do believe that the President has great confidence in the national security team".

After three days with Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told supporters at a campaign event in Munich on May 28 that "the times when we could fully rely on others are to some extent over".

"America is our Congress, which now has within it as many internationalists, both Republicans and Democrats, as any Congress in which I have served".

"I think he (Putin) is the premier and most important threat, more so than ISIS", he continued in his interview while en route to Singapore for a defense summit, according to Yahoo News.
