Cindy said she was heartbroken by the death of an "incredible man". 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".

He leaves behind a legacy of courage and conviction - I hope we all can reflect on these values as we work together to heal and advance America.

"One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur", he said.
