Trump, a political foe of McCain, issued a statement Monday afternoon after receiving backlash to say the White House flag would remain at half-staff until McCain is interred.

Mr Trump has refused to publish a letter drafted by White House staff on the death of Mr McCain. NPR has President Trump's statement: "Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment", which is Saturday.

On Tuesday, the South Carolina Republican said he would carry on McCain's legacy by lobbying President Donald Trump to keep USA troops in Afghanistan, apparently in perpetuity, according to The Washington Examiner.

The Wall Street Journal did the bulk of the reporting on this, and according to their sources, Trump thought the McCain coverage was "over-the-top and more befitting a president".

He mentioned two other possibilities to honor McCain: naming the Senate Armed Services Committee room for the late chairman or adding a portrait of McCain to the Senate reception room.

Trump and McCain were bitter rivals in the first years of his presidency, of course, and there was no love lost between them-McCain specifically said before his death that he didn't want the president at his funeral. Over the past two years he has stood out as a key rival and critic of U.S. President Donald Trump. It will include remarks from Gov. Doug Ducey and former USA senator Jon Kyl, plus a benediction from Sen.

"Rick Davis: "'We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe.

McCain will be buried in a private service at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland on Sunday. "They're tough. They're doing great".

Aside from the moments when he was not invited to funerals or other high-profile events for one reason or another, the Washington Post piece also focused on how Trump seems to express pride in the rejection of "elites".

Graham, who has traveled the world with McCain as one of a group of Senate friends known as 'The Three Amigos, ' will pay tribute to his pal with a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday.

"I think we need to take a deep breath and do these ceremonies this week in a manner that will respect his legacy and his life", Perdue said.
