Paul said that McCain's recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his "personal dispute" with the president over foreign policy.

He added that McCain and Trump are at odds because McCain supports the wide deployment of U.S. troops to protect and promote American interests abroad while he characterized Trump's views as closer to a realpolitik approach to foreign policy.

"Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he's got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain's the guy who's advocated for war everywhere," Paul said on ABC's "This Week."
