WATCH: Trump Says Media 'Messed Up' POW Remark; Meghan McCain Fires Back
"Fox and Friends" talked to Donald Trump and Meghan McCain this morning about the fallout from Trump's controversial remark about Sen. John McCain's time as a prisoner of war.
Trump accused the media of "messing up" in their reporting of what he said over the weekend in Iowa.
Some GOP candidates called on Trump to drop out of the race after he remarked that "I like people that weren't captured," in reference to McCain's time as a POW in Vietnam.
Trump was asked this morning for his message to Meghan McCain and the senator's sons who are in the military.
Trump wished Meghan McCain well in her new role as a Fox News contributor, saying he believes she'll be very successful.
"I think when people looked at my statement, they said that it was right. It was just really messed up by the press, as usual, by the media. Most importantly, her father is a great man, I supported him for president," he said.
A few minutes later, the hosts brought in Meghan McCain to get her response. On "The Kelly File" Monday, McCain called Trump's remark about her father "one of the grossest, most disgusting comments I’ve ever heard."
She responded today that Trump simply needs to apologize to the many POWs who were offended. McCain said the issue is not about whether Trump thinks her father is a "great guy."
"If he would just apologize for the statements he made, and say, 'you know what, maybe I was disrespectful to the many POWs that spent time in prison serving our country,' I think it would be fine," she said.
McCain said she believes Trump's current lead in the polls is based on "name ID," and that will change when voters become more familiar with the other candidates.
