McCain thinks he's been treated worse than Trump

Donald Trump gave vent to frustrations over his mounting political problems on Wednesday, declaring that no president in United States history had been treated "more unfairly".

While the White House attempts to get a handle on this week's scandal, Donald Trump gave his first commencement address to a graduating class of cadets Wednesday (May 17) and told them in life they'll sometimes be the recipients of backlash they did not merit.

However, Trump told the cadets that things will work out fine if you put your head down and fight and never give up.

"Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media", Trump said.

This comes in the wake of what has fast become a National situation, after the NY times alleged that the president asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn during an Oval Office meeting in February.

"I've been worse treated than President Trump has, so let's be sure that we know about that", McCain said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". "You can't let them get you down", he said.

However, the Senate Intelligence Committee has also formally asked James Comey to hand over all memos relating to his conversations with Donald Trump and appear before it in both open and closed sessions. The New York Times, citing sources close to Comey, reported yesterday that Trump asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation director in an Oval Office meeting to drop its probe of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The Trump administration denied the report, and the president faced further scrutiny when the Washington Post reported that he divulged highly classified material to Russian diplomats in a meeting.
