The Trump administration is in “disarray,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told European officials on Friday.
Speaking at the Munich Security Conference, McCain, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, took a shot at Trump’s performance as president.
“The president I think makes statements (and) on other occasions contradicts himself. So we’ve learned to watch what the president does as opposed to what he says,” McCain said.
Trump said although Trump has some good people around him, the messy resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is a symptom that all is not well in the White House.

“The Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that, in many respects, this administration is in disarray and they have a lot of work to do,” McCain said.
However, McCain voiced support for some of Trump’s Cabinet members.
“I believe that if I had been asked to pick the team around President Trump, I couldn’t have picked a better team,” McCain said.
“I couldn’t be happier to have a secretary of defense in General Mattis. You’re going to see General Kelly. He’s an outstanding individual,” McCain said.
The Arizona Republican also voiced optimism for new faces that would be joining the Trump administration without naming names.
“And there are those who are now going to be on his team who I think we can have great confidence in, most importantly on national security,” McCain said.
Trump asked retired Vice Admiral Bob Harward to serve as his national security adviser to replace Flynn, but Harward turned down the job, according to media reports. Ret. Lt. Gen. Joseph Keith Kellogg is currently serving as the national security adviser.
At the conference, McCain said alliances are essential to preserving freedom.

McCain’s criticism of the Trump administration on Friday echoed comments he made earlier in the week.
“General Flynn’s resignation is a troubling indication of the dysfunction of the current national security apparatus,” McCain said then.
