McCain called the trip “excellent” and "successful,” and that the trip has encouraged the United States allies in the region.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who has long been a critic of President Trump, applauded Trump’s first foreign trip during an interview on Fox News Sunday.

“I think this trip so far has been excellent. I think that the Sunni Arab world and particularly our traditional friends there are encouraged because of the very strained, if not estranged, relations between the previous administration,” McCain told Fox News’ Chris Wallace.

McCain concluded, “I think it successful, I think it’s important. There’s no doubt that if we are going to impede the Iranian’s continued efforts to exert certainly significant strength in the region, that this is an important step forward.”
