Donald Trump directed some of his Twitter rage at Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who withdrew his support for the GOP presidential nominee over lewd remarks he made about women over a decade ago.

“The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!” Mr. Trump said on Twitter Tuesday.

Mr. McCain said in a debate Monday that he might write in Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

“He’s an old, good friend of mine and a lot of people like him,” he said, before turning to Mr. Trump and Hillary Clinton. “The fact is I can’t, seriously, I cannot vote for either one.”

Mr. McCain stuck with Mr. Trump last year after the New York businessman ridiculed the idea that he is a war hero for getting shot down over Vietnam and being imprisoned for nearly six years.

“He’s not a war hero,” Mr. Trump said. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
