Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) offers fierce criticism of President Trump in his upcoming memoir, decrying the president's attacks on the press and denouncing his rhetoric on refugees.

"The way he speaks about [refugees] is appalling, as though welfare or terrorism were the only purposes they could have in coming to our country," McCain writes in his forthcoming book, "The Restless Wave," according to an excerpt published by NPR.

McCain, a vocal Trump critic, also goes after the president for his insistence that media outlets that cover his administration critically are "fake news," saying that authoritarian governments abroad have echoed that phrase to discredit the press.

McCain, who served as the GOP's presidential nominee in 2008, has been among Trump's most ardent GOP critics in Congress.

While the bulk of McCain's book reportedly deals with other major issues of the past several years, including the Iraq War, the Arizona Republican also offers a biting assessment of Trump.

In one section, McCain admits that he's "not sure what to make of President Trump's convictions."

"He threatened to deliberately kill the spouses and children of terrorists, implying that an atrocity of that magnitude would show the world America's toughness," he added later.
