Trump wanted John McCain to apologize to him after the 2016 election, longtime aide says in new book

President Donald Trump and late Sen. John McCain had an introductory phone call shortly after Trump's January 2017 inauguration in which the newly installed president lashed out at the widely respected statesman.

Mark Salter, McCain's longtime confidant and aide, recounted the conversation in a book released this week, "The Luckiest Man: Life with John McCain."

The call began with heated remarks, McCain told Salter. Trump started off saying he was hurt after McCain withdrew his endorsement during the 2016 presidential election.

McCain, as the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, was initially hesitant to endorse Trump. He did so reluctantly because he had "to respect the process," Salter wrote.
