John McCain on how he'd like to be remembered

Sen. John McCain told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that he wants to be remembered for having served his country, "and I hope we can add, 'honorably.'"

  • On his health: "The prognosis is very good," but "this is a very virulent form of cancer. It has to be fought against ... I'm not trying to paint this as a rosy picture."
  • On Trump's deal with "Chuck and Nancy": "The proposal that the president accepted, the Speaker of the House had just categorically rejected. That's not the way we need to do business."
  • On North Korea: "Make sure that Kim Jong-Un knows if he acts in an aggressive fashion, the price will be extinction."
  • On DACA: "It is not conscionable to tell young people, who came here as children, that they have to go back to a country that they don't know."
