John McCain funeral: Hollywood star Warren Beatty to be pallbearer

John McCain funeral: Hollywood star Warren Beatty to be pallbearer

Trump campaigned on a promise to build a wall across the USA border with Mexico and force Mexico to pay for it. The two had a long-running feud.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer proposed renaming the Senate's oldest office building in McCain's honor after the veteran Republican senator died Saturday from brain cancer.

HuffPost published a headline that read, "White House lowers flag to half staff as nation honors John McCain".

Trump rejected a more laudatory White House statement that praised McCain's war record and decades of public service, and he did not answered any shouted questions from reporters about McCain during multiple press availabilities on Monday, the Washington Post reported.

President Trump has asked Vice-President Mike Pence to speak at a service at the US Capitol on Friday, and deputed chief of staff John Kelly, defense secretary James Mattis and national security advisor John Bolton to represent him at the Sunday service.

"The president will not be, as far as we know, attending the funeral".

McCain's love for Larson was very apparent at his retirement party in 1988, Huey said.

In response to another question, Davis told reporters that the family's thoughts were exclusively on McCain. It also would have called him a "hero".

A minute later, they doubled their advantage when Christian Eriksen's cross was swept home by Lucas. Paper Round's view: Is this the end? "We need to pick up points, especially with two losses now".


A private ceremony will be held on Sunday at the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel in Annapolis, Maryland, and McCain will be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery next to Naval Academy classmate and long-time friend, Admiral Chuck Larson.

"It's outrageous that the White House would mark American hero John McCain's death with a two-sentence tweet, making no mention of his heroic and inspiring life", said AMVETS National Executive Director Joe Chenelly. The service will also include a performance of the Irish ballad "Danny Boy" by opera singer Renée Fleming.

The statement, drafted before the senator's death Saturday, would have commended the Arizona Republican for his military service and his decades in the Senate.

Graham concluded his remarks by saying that without McCain, he'll be on a lonely journey "for a while" and that he shouldn't be looked upon to replace his dear friend.

It's good, I suppose, that President Trump or his advisors finally saw fit to set aside his grievances and do the right thing. "McCain should be honored", the Missouri Republican said."I don't think we want to necessarily rush to decide which of those is the best idea". Trump appeared to defend the rallygoers when he said there were "fine people on both sides". Trump eventually spoke about the senator while meeting with evangelical leaders at the White House on Monday night.

Earlier this month, when he signed a multi-billion dollar defence bill named after McCain, Mr Trump did not say his name.

"I do not cry for a ideal man", Graham said. We have acquired great wealth and power in the process.
