NEW YORK (NBC NEWS) -

Sen. John McCain said this morning that Donald Trump should apologize to veterans for his comments about soldiers captured in war.

Asked on MSNBC's Morning Joe if Trump owes him an apology, McCain responded: "No, I don't think so. But I think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience in serving their country."

Trump has been blasted for his comments in Iowa on Saturday that McCain, who was held captive for almost six years during the Vietnam War, was "a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured," said Trump.
