Canadian CEO blames Trump for Iran plane crash that killed an employee's family


Michael McCain, the CEO of Canadian food company Maple Leaf Foods, took to Twitter to blast Trump for his mishandling of the Iran conflict. He views the recent plane crash in Iran, which led to the deaths of all 176 people on board, including 57 Canadians. One Maple Leaf Foods employee lost his wife and 11-year-old son as "collateral damage" in Trump's "ill-conceived plan." 

Using Maple Leaf Foods' verified Twitter account, McCain launched into a thread chastising the president for his actions. He says the administration's actions led to the recent plane crash in Iran. Iran said it shot down the plane by mistake hours after firing missiles at Iraqi military bases that house U.S. troops, according to CNN
