McCain's final statement: Americans have 'more in common'

Трамп запретил Белому дому называть Маккейна героем McCain's final statement: Americans have 'more in common'

McCain is scheduled to lie in state at the Arizona Capitol on Wednesday, followed by the service on Thursday.

Publicly, Trump has frequently railed against McCain's dramatic thumbs-down vote against the president's efforts to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law. Plans call for McCain, a former Navy pilot, to be buried Sunday in the cemetery on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.

When he finally did comment, in a printed statement, Trump was sparing with his praise for the six-term senator: "Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country". The photo behind McCain is that the Hanoi army and people pull out McCain out of Truc Back Lake on October 26, 1967 after his plane was shot down.

Hanoi paid tribute Monday to former US Senator John McCain, a onetime foe who helped heal the wounds of the Vietnam War after spending years as a prisoner in the city. But evidence of Trump's feud with McCain remained.

The Republican establishment's favourite, Representative Martha McSally, has linked herself to the president as she tries to fend off far-right challenges from Arpaio and Kelli Ward, a onetime state senator who won almost 40 per cent of the vote in a 2016 primary against McCain.

"Whether at war, or in politics, or representing America overseas, no one fought harder with more courage and honor for his country and its ideals than John McCain".

Barring an official White House proclamation ordering flags nationwide to be flown at half-staff in McCain's honor, the top Senate Republican and Democrat on Monday requested that the Defense Department "provide necessary support so that United States flags on all government buildings remain at half-mast through sunset on the day of Senator McCain's interment", Schumer's communications director said.

While much of the nation remembered McCain's record as a war hero, longtime senator and presidential nominee over the weekend, Trump had nursed his grievances.

Even as flags remained at half-staff Monday at the Capitol, the Washington Memorial and elsewhere, the White House flag was raised. The American Legion was among those who criticized the White House lapse and urged that the flag be lowered.

The flag was lowered to half staff following McCain's death on Saturday, and President Donald Trump made a statement on Twitter.

"I think it should be a conservative, someone that supports President Trump - I think that should be the main issue", said Joe Arpaio, the former county sheriff whom Trump pardoned previous year and who is currently running for the seat now held by Flake, who is not seeking re-election. He then served in the U.S. Congress for more than three decades. French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted in English that McCain "was a true American hero".
