The daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Wednesday criticized those applauding the exit of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, saying they had better brace themselves for "Trumpism" which "you will like a lot less."

"The people that are cheering, do you know what comes in his place? Trumpism," said Meghan McCain on ABC's "The View" after some in the audience clapped at Ryan's decision to retire from the House. "And I assume if you don't like Paul Ryan you probably hate Trump more.

"So, maybe don't cheer when people like Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney and Trey Gowdy and people like Ben Sasse who are, thank God, still in office or maybe on their way out, because I assure you, what's in its place you will like a lot less."

She said Ryan was a "classic conservative" before Trump came along – a change that "makes me really sad."

Trump and the McCain family have had a stormy history.

This week, Sen. McCain indirectly blamed Trump for the chemical weapons attack in Syria, suggesting his recent comments about U.S. troops leaving Syria "very soon" and his noninterventionist approach have "emboldened" Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, The Washington Post reported Monday.

And in the past, Trump questioned the Arizona Republican's legacy as a Vietnam War hero.
