The Atlantic reported Thursday that when Sen. John McCain died in 2018, Trump told his staff that "we're not going to support that loser's funeral" and was furious when the flags were lowered to honor the senator for his public and military service.

Trump denied the report, claiming that he approved the lowering of the flags and funeral services for McCain "without hesitation or complaint."

Former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security Miles Taylor responded to the president's tweets, writing in his own post "that is not true."
