While Washington gathered to honor Senator John McCain, President Donald Trump hit the golf course - and his Twitter account.

As many in Washington gathered to pay their respects to Senator John McCain, President Donald Trump hit the golf course after a busy morning on Twitter going after a few regular targets.

In a tweet, Trump called NAFTA one of the worst trade deals ever made, saying "there is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal."


Trump also called the media corrupt, brought up the Clinton campaign and mentioned what he calls the "fake dossier."



The president also quoted others who said the Department of Justice and the FBI are out of touch.

A few miles from where Trump was tweeting, the late Senator John McCain was honored by three former presidents and high-powered politicians from both sides of the aisle. Trump was reportedly not invited.

While no one explicitly mentioned Trump at McCain's funeral, Meghan McCain made it clear that the president was not far from everyone's minds.

"The America of John McCain has no need to be great again, because it was already great," Meghan McCain said in a eulogy for her father.

Hours after McCain's memorial service, Trump sent a tweet that said "Make America Great Again!"



There has been no word if the tweet was in response to Meghan McCain's eulogy.
