Donald Trump is facing a firestorm of controversy after his comments about Sen. John McCain’s war record.

“He’s not a war hero,” the presidential candidate said at the 4th annual Family Leadership Summit in Iowa yesterday. “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”

Many of Trump’s GOP rivals have slammed his comments and called for him to back out of the 2016 race.

Trump said on “Fox and Friends Weekend” today that those calls are “total nonsense” and pointed out that he’s still leading in the polls.
