The president told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that “except for one Senator, who came into a room at three o’clock in the morning and went like that,” Trump gave a thumbs-down, “we would have had health care (reform), too.”

Trump added, “I won’t use his name.”
McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer last summer and is in Arizona battling the disease.
