TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – President Tsai Ing-wen on Thursday tweeted her wishes for a
quick recovery for prominent United States Senator John McCain, after he had been diagnosed with brain cancer.
The Arizona Republican is known as a staunch supporter of Taiwan and chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee. The island relies for a large part of its defense on arms supplies from the U.S.
McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot last week, which turned up the discovery of a brain tumor.
“John McCain is a champion for #freedom & #liberty around the world. I join the people of #Taiwan in wishing him a quick recovery,” Tsai tweeted. [FULL STORY]
