Barack Obama, Jimmy Kimmel, Reese Witherspoon and more remember John McCain: 'A Hero has fallen'
Trump retorted that the senator was "not a war hero" and referred to McCain's years as a prisoner of the North Vietnamese by saying: "I like people who weren't captured".
McCain, a prisoner of war and six-term Arizona senator, had been battling glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, discovered by his doctors in July 2017.
Mr McCain's body will lie in state in the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday and at the US Capitol Rotunda on Friday, giving his colleagues and the public a chance to pay their respects.

In more than three decades in Congress, McCain became known as a political maverick willing to stick to his convictions rather than go along with party leaders - an independent streak that has drawn a mix of respect and ire.
His family has said he did not want the President to attend his funeral. Instead, Trump took to his preferred medium of Twitter to send wan condolences to the family of McCain. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"
