"White House Asked Navy to Hide McCain Wars" (news article, May 30):
President Trump's denial that he was aware of the White House's request John the McCain during his trip to Japan raises two possibilities.
The first is that his denial is a lie. Mr. Trump has read and is there no act of shabby vindictiveness to which he will not stoop.
The second is this one of the vanishingly rare cases in which he tells the truth.
Neither possibility suits the dignity of a proud democracy. Make America great again indeed.
