White House flag no longer at half-staff after McCain's death

President Trump may not attend Senator McCain's funeral

Add John McCain as an interest to stay up to date on the latest John McCain news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

David J. Hickton, former US attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania and the founding director of the Institute for Cyber Law, Policy and Security at the University of Pittsburgh, said he was honored to meet McCain when serving on the President's Advisory Committee on the Arts for the Kennedy Center around 2000. "There's been few leaders that have ever sacrificed as much as John McCain". His impact on America hasn't ended.

Speaking to the Economic Club of Canada months ahead of the election he would lose to Barack Obama, McCain lauded the pact for doubling cross-border trade, creating 25 million jobs in the USA and four million in Canada. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were devastated by the loss Saturday, struggling to imagine Washington without him.

McCain's office said a livestream will be available for the services at the National Phoenix Baptist Church and the National Cathedral.

According to pool reports, some of the elderly in wheelchairs were supported by family members as they boarded the buses. Twenty rounds of face-to-face family reunions have been held since the first inter-Korean summit in 2000.

"Nobody can take away from him the courage that he had", Huckabee said, noting how McCain refused to be released from captivity unless his fellow prisoners were, too.

Ducey himself faces a weak primary challenge from his right in the state's primary elections Tuesday, and spokesman Daniel Ruiz said today that the appointment will not be made until after McCain's funeral, which will likely be next week. The original statement was drafted before McCain died Saturday, and Sanders and others edited a final version this weekend that was ready for the president, the aides said. "I appreciate my colleagues and the entire Senate and House family's assistance with this honor".

"John put principle before politics. God bless John McCain". All three GOP candidates in the race to replace Arizona's other senator, Jeff Flake, have embraced Trump and distanced themselves from McCain.

McCain prized the Senate as an institution and the Senate floor as a hotbed for debate.

McCain was the central figure in one of the most dramatic legislative failures of Trump's presidency when he returned to Washington shortly after his cancer diagnosis and cast a decisive vote to scuttle a Trump-backed bill to repeal Obamacare. "We will strongly miss him, especially in times when politicians like him are needed".

While he prized unity and conservatism, he will be remembered for opposing a narrow repeal of the Affordable Care Act in 2017 with a dramatic thumbs-down that shocked the chamber and reset the fate of Obamacare - a decision that seemed nearly unimaginable at a time when Republicans had spent nearly a decade campaigning to undo the law.

"He was a huge institutionalist and loved the Senate because the Senate forces individuals and parties to come together and he wasn't seeing that", Flake said. Trump has repeatedly, in the past, attacked the Senator, even as he battled a deadly form of brain cancer.
