The funeral service for McCain has been scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1, at 10 a.m., at Washington National Cathedral. “Our hearts and prayers are with you!” he tweeted instead.
The death of Senator John McCain is being mourned by US Jewish groups and Israeli political leaders from across the political spectrum.
Critics on Saturday blasted for president for the seemingly superficial nature of his words for McCain.
Sen. John McCain, a legend in the Senate, a hero for the country and a statesman who shaped the country on everything from United States foreign policy to immigration reform, has left a hole in the heart of Washington. French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted in English that McCain “was a true American hero”. Hill Reporter would like to remind our readers that Donald Trump avoiding the draft by claiming to have “bone spurs”.
“John put principle before politics”.
Former President George W. Bush called McCain a friend, he will “deeply miss”.
The senator is survived by his mother, Roberta; his wife, Cindy; two sons and a daughter from a first marriage, Douglas, Andrew and Sidney; four children from his second marriage, Meghan McCain, Jimmy McCain, Jack McCain and Bridget McCain; a brother, Joseph McCain; a sister, Jean McCain Morgan; and five grandchildren. Arizona Sen. McCain, the war hero who became the GOP’s standard-bearer in the 2008 election, has died.
It will conclude almost a week of events honouring the man, whose body will lie in state on Wednesday in the Arizona State Capitol and on Friday in the Capitol Rotunda, Washington DC, with a formal ceremony and time for the public to pay respects.
Leonid Slutsky, head of the lower house of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, told the RIA Novosti state news agency that McCain was a “courageous and principled person”.
“We both were hopeful that it would not be the last time”, Leahy said.
Clearly, there had been no love lost between McCain and Trump.

Trump on McCain: Why did he scrap an official statement?
The planned statement from Trump on McCain and his heroism was not used.
“Back in 2015, Trump proclaimed, “[McCain]’s not a war hero.
“It’s sad, actually, because he’s a reminder of the days of being able to find common ground and not just talking past each other”, said Bill Brenner, 48, of Haverhill, during a visit to the institute Sunday afternoon.”He showed that you can dispute with a sense of duty, respect to other viewpoints, and overall humanity”. “I think it’s the same feeling for all Vietnamese people as he has greatly contributed to the development of Vietnam-U.S. relations”. “Now we’re gonna do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can.’ And, at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well lived”.
