John McCain rival claims pre-death announcement was a political ploy

McCain was 'a committed hawk who pecked at Russian Federation out of principle, ' Rossiya 1 reported on its main news show on Sunday evening, devoting more than four minutes to the senator's life. The Arizona Republican, whose relationship with President Trump has always been fraught, died on Saturday at the age of 81 after battling brain cancer.

He will be buried in a private service at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, where his service to his country began six decades ago, at a cemetery overlooking Maryland's Severn River.

Trump's tweet Saturday night did not mention his military or Senate service or include any praise for the late Arizona Republican. Daniel Inouye, president pro tem of the Senate, who died in office in December 2012.

One message in Vietnamese said: "Condolences to senator and war veteran John McCain, who greatly contributed to the normalisation of Vietnam-US relations".

The Rev. Billy Graham earlier this year became one of four people who have lain in honor at the Capitol, which is different from lying in state.

U.S. Senator John McCain was a "symbol of his generation" who helped "heal the wounds of war" by pushing for diplomatic normalization of ties with Vietnam, the Southeast Asian country's foreign minister said on Monday.

But they were flying at full-staff by Monday morning, even as the flags at the US Capitol remained at half-staff. "At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years", the statement said. Sources close to McCain have said Trump would not be invited to the funeral.

After Democratic Ted Kennedy of MA died in 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House flown at half-staff for five days. John McCain in a statement on Monday after responding only with silence to questions about the Vietnam War veteran.

A senior political analyst for Fox News, Donald Trump's favourite news channel, has pointed out the President's tribute to John McCain did not actually contain a tribute to the man himself. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

Arizona law requires only that Gov. Doug Ducey name a replacement who is a member of McCain's Republican Party and who will fill the seat until the next general election in 2020. Since McCain's passing, Trump originally only sent a single tweet sending his condolences to McCain's family - a message that also failed to label the late senator a hero. Davis said, declining to reiterate what has already been reported about the McCain family's wishes. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are expected to speak at the service.
