The CEO of trans-national Canadian food processing firm Maple Leaf Foods is blaming “narcissist” President Donald Trump for Iran’s shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner.

Michael McCain used the company Twitter account to deliver a diatribe against Trump because the “collateral damage” of killing Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was “63 Canadians [who] lost their lives.”

McCain said he is “very angry” that a “colleague of mine lost his wife and family this week to a needless, irresponsible series of events in Iran.” (RELATED: Trudeau Responds To Plane Crash That Killed 63 Canadians, Doesn’t Seem To Angry At Iran)

Iran admitted on Friday that it accidentally downed the aircraft, believing it was an incoming missile and has since suggested that “U.S. adventurism” and “human error” were responsible for the crash. However, McCain insisted the tragedy was a direct result of the U.S. government having “concocted an ill-conceived plan to divert focus from political woes …”

McCain suggested that order in the Middle East has been upended because “a narcissist in Washington tears world accomplishments apart; destabilizes region,” in a possible reference to the Iran nuclear deal. He then suggested that Soleimani was just another “despicable military leader terrorist. There are a hundred like him.” (RELATED: Mark Esper Defends Strike Against Soleimani, Says It’s Better Than Having ‘Flag-Draped Coffins Come Home’)

McCain placed the blame on the aircraft being shot down squarely on the Trump administration’s actions. “The collateral damage of this irresponsible, dangerous, ill-conceived behaviour? 63 Canadians needlessly lost their lives in the crossfire … ”
