McCain to lie in state at Capitol in Washington Arizona

Obama, who ran against the Republican senator from the western state of Arizona in the 2008 presidential election and defeated him, noted how despite their different generations, backgrounds and politics, "we saw this country as a place where anything is possible".

The McCain-Trump relationship grew heated in 2015 when McCain said Trump's candidacy had "fired up the crazies". Trump's tweet was fairly generic. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

"On Oct 26, 1967, at Truc Bach Lake, the military and people of Hanoi arrested Major John Sidney McCain, a pilot of the American Navy's air force", it says on the sculpture, which depicts an airman with his hands above his head in front of a broken plane wing. "He denies everything, but Melania isn't stupid, and she has a good grasp on what's reality and what's actual fake news".

Presidents past and present joined members of Congress from both parties and world leaders in mourning Senator John McCain and praising him for a lifetime of service and accomplishments.

Like many others, Trump took to Twitter to share a brief but honest note about the late Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate. "Fight with me fight for what's right for our country".

"John McCain, in death", said historian Jon Meacham, "is performing the unifying function that the incumbent president is congenitally incapable of performing". As the New York Times accused the president of failure to award a "cursory public show of respect for John McCain", Twitter users called the U.S. leader a "morally bankrupt person" and accused him of "mocking and trolling" the national hero.

In more than 3 decades on Capitol Hill, McCain focused on foreign affairs and built a generally conservative record but built a reputation for working across party lines. "Godspeed, Senator. You will be sorely missed", he said.

It was in July of this year that McCain was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

After Trump's joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, in which Trump did not endorse U.S. intelligence findings on Russian election meddling over Putin's denial, McCain said: "The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate".

After Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) passed away Saturday evening, President Donald Trump vetoed the release of a glowing statement on the former congressman and prisoner of war, opting to instead post a mere 21-word statement on Twitter expressing "sympathies" for the family, The Washington Post reported.

"Karen and I send our deepest condolences to Cindy and the entire McCain family on the passing of Senator John McCain".

When McCain learned of his cancer diagnosis, he focused on his concern for his family and a "renewed drive" to complete his work, said Kennedy's widow, Victoria Reggie Kennedy, in a tribute published by the Globe.

"I never had a regret about that", he said.

John Sidney McCain III was born in 1936 in the Panama Canal zone, where his father was stationed in the military.
