Arizona Prepares To Honor McCain

Arizona Prepares To Honor McCain

The White House issued two statements on Monday, and once again lowered the American flag to half-staff, after having raised it Monday morning, following the death of U.S. Senator John McCain.

Jeff Flake, the junior Republican senator who served alongside McCain, Schumer said.

Rick Davis, former presidential campaign manager for McCain who is serving as a family spokesman, read the farewell message Monday at a press briefing in Phoenix. And he criticized the senator on Twitter, especially when their policy views differed.

McCain, even as he neared death, disparaged Trump's presidency, rebuking the US leader for his seeming embrace of Russian President Vladimir Putin's position at last month's Helsinki summit that Russia had not meddled in the 2016 USA presidential election. "But I think there ought to be a significant memorial for Senator McCain and his service", said Sen. "Our hearts and prayers are with you". "Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here".

McConnell reflected on the time he was able to spend with McCain this past May at his home in Sedona, Arizona, where he stayed while he underwent treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer, glioblastoma multiforme.

On Monday, for instance, flags at the White House were not lowered.

"I have asked Vice President Mike Pence to offer an address at the ceremony honoring Senator McCain at the United States Capitol this Friday".

In the afternoon, he returned to the White House, where the flags were lowered to half-staff in honour of Mr McCain.

US President Donald Trump says his impeachment would 'crash' the economy
Trump denies ordering Cohen to break the law and says that the money came from his own fortune , not the campaign account. That is a bad strategy if Mr Trump truly has nothing to hide, said Mr Eric Freedman, a constitutional law professor.

Mr Trump has refused to publish a letter drafted by White House staff on the death of Mr McCain. When one of his supporters said that he was "scared" of Obama, McCain replied that his Democratic rival was a "decent person" and one who "you don't have to be scared of as president of the United States".

Mourners left an Navy officer's cap and flowers on the steps of the Russell Senate Office Building Monday, two days after the death of Arizona Sen. "I know how the country feels about John McCain".

Until that point, Trump had not issued a formal statement on McCain or commented on his service to the country, instead tweeting brief condolences Saturday to the senator's family.

Possible appointees whose names circulate among Arizona politicos include McCain's widow, Cindy McCain, former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl and Republican Gov. Doug Ducey's chief of staff Kirk Adams.

In abruptly seizing control of the Republican Party in 2016, Mr Trump frequently denigrated Mr McCain, who stood as an embodiment of the GOP for decades.

"I like a man who is humble, who can admit when he's wrong", said Poe.

McCain will be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland, on Sunday.

"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", he continued. Trump later told a crowd in Iowa that McCain was only a war hero "because he was captured".
