Arizona senator John McCain said Tuesday that any attempts by the incoming Trump administration to reset relations with Russia would be unacceptable.
In a statement issued, McCain, R-Ariz., said the price of starting anew with Moscow would be U.S. complicity in the “butchery of the Syrian people” being carried out by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad.
“That is an unacceptable price for a great nation,” McCain said. “When America has been at its greatest, it is when we have stood on the side of those fighting tyranny. That is where we must stand again.”
