President Donald Trump’s initial reaction to the crash of the USS John McCain with a merchant ship east of Singapore that left five sailors injured and ten missing was: “That’s too bad.” Trump responded to the crash when reporters shouted questions at him late Sunday when he arrived on the South Lawn of the White House on the presidential helicopter Marine One.
