McCain takes particular aim at Trump, a real estate developer and former reality-television star, writing that he “has declined to distinguish the actions of our government from the crimes of despotic ones.”

“The appearance of toughness, or a reality show facsimile of toughness, seems to matter more than any of our values,” McCain says…

He says that the kind of candidate who should be president is someone who “modestly promises to build relationships on both sides of the aisle, to form alliances to promote their ideas, to respect other points of view, and to split differences where possible to make measurable progress on national problems.”
