Tributes pour in after death of US senator John McCain

Former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman of CT, who was one of McCain's closest friends in the Senate, said the death of McCain means America has lost one of its greatest patriots and public servants in its history.

The Hill reported that several officials at the White House prepared a longer statement which called McCain a hero, yet Trump passed on the message and opted for a tweet.

The American flag that flies above the White House was at full staff on Monday-shortly after it was lowered in honor of Sen. Soon after his death, former presidents, lawmakers, and others all issued statements praising McCain's accomplishments.

"John McCain was cantankerous at times - and proud of it - but always fighting to make our nation better", Corker continued. Vice President Mike Pence is likely to attend in place of the president.

The former military personnel also requested to be buried at Annapolis, Maryland's U.S. Naval Academy, a desire he revealed in a September 2017 60 Minutes segment.

The American Legion is demanding that President Donald Trump issue a proclamation honoring Sen. According to the Associated Press, McCain's family requested that Trump not attend services.

Flags are flying at half-staff in NY and CT to honor Senator John McCain, who died Saturday at the age of 81.

"My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

McCain frequently criticized the president's policies and tone and famously sunk Trump-backed legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

But Trump has released a tweet of condolence.

McCain said the battles in Vietnam prepared him for high office.

For an associate justice of the Supreme Court, secretary of executive or military department, former vice president, or governor, the prescribed time is from "the day of death until interment". A member of Congress is supposed to get the flags lowered on the day of his or her death, as well as the day after. McCain served as a naval pilot in the Vietnam War, spending five years as a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down in 1967. The White House flag was re-lowered to half-staff this afternoon.

On Saturday, presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush will deliver the eulogies during a ceremony to be held at the Washington National Cathedral.
