Trump’s White House Fails to Keep Flag at Half-staff to Honor McCain

Davis was with the McCain family this past weekend when the 81-year-old senator died of brain cancer.

The ceremonies begin Wednesday in Phoenix, Arizona, where the senator will lie in state in the Rotunda of the Arizona State Capitol throughout the day, starting with a private ceremony at 10 a.m. local time. Members of the public will be able to pay their respects at the State Capitol.

Veterans who fought in the war were among those who travelled to the USA embassy in Hanoi to pay their respects. He'll receive a full funeral service at the Washington National Cathedral and a burial in Annapolis, Md., but a schedule of events has yet to be released. Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush have reportedly been invited to deliver eulogies.

Senator McCain will be laid to rest next to his Naval Academy classmate and lifelong friend, Admiral Chuck Larson, who passed away in 2014.


In sharp contrast to an array of similarly worded sympathies and praises, expressed by U.S. lawmakers, former presidents and foreign leaders, on Saturday Trump instead tweeted briefly: "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

"Our hearts and prayers are with you!" Jeff Flake, who, like McCain, outraged the state's conservative base for bucking Trump on immigration and other issues.

"He loved every piece and place that he traveled here in our state".

Like many others, Trump took to Twitter to share a brief but honest note about the late Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate. Now, after McCain's death, Ducey's office announced they will not select a successor until after McCain's funeral. Weeks leading up to his death, McCain called Trump "naïve" for meeting Vladimir Putin at the Helsinki Summit. "I think it's the same feeling for all Vietnamese people as he has greatly contributed to the development of Vietnam-U.S. relations". "He showed us that boundless patriotism and self-sacrifice are not outdated concepts or cliches, but the building blocks of an extraordinary life".


McCain was a prominent critic of President Donald Trump. "He put country before self", Ryan said.

"One man can only become a people's hero when he has not just courage, but also talent and ethics".

Obama, who triumphed over McCain in the 2008 election, said that despite their differences, McCain and he shared a "fidelity to something higher - the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed". "At that moment, the nation saw how much more was possible when senators worked together, keeping the nation's interests in mind without worrying about who got the credit", she wrote.

"Later on when he became a USA senator, he and Sen".


"We will remember his dedication and support towards rebuilding AFG", Ghani tweeted.
