NNPA Official Statement On The Passing of Senator John McCain

Flags at the U.S. Capitol, where he served two terms in the House and six terms in the Senate, remained at half staff on Monday morning.

Marc Short, Trump's former legislative director, said the president faced "a little bit of a situation of a Catch 22" when deciding how to respond to McCain's death. John McCain from 10 a.m.to noon Thursday. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to represent the White House at McCain's funeral service. The original statement was drafted before McCain died Saturday, and Sanders and others edited a final version this weekend that was ready for the president, the aides said.

How likely are we to hear anything similar from any presidential candidate in today's uber-partisan climate?

Getty In a surprising move, John McCain will not be buried next to his father and grandfather in Arlington National Cemetery.

There will be words of praise, but during that 2008 visit, he spoke for himself: "My accomplishments are more a testament to my country, the land of opportunity, than they are to me". John McCain (R-Ariz.), a family spokesman said, The Washington Post reported Monday.

Congressional leaders announced that McCain would lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda, though they did not give a date.

MacKay said he first met McCain in 2004 and through his time as a cabinet minister, MacKay had ongoing interactions with McCain.




Other tributes poured in from around the globe. And Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel, called McCain "a tireless fighter for a strong trans-Atlantic alliance".

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted in English that McCain "was a true American hero. His significance went well beyond his own country".

"Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country and, in his honour, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment", Trump said in a statement.

".From being a POW, all through his senate life and his career".

Short said he personally considers McCain "an American hero who served our country nobly". Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., told CNN's "State of the Union".

"Instead, he went back to the Senate, mentoring young senators like myself, taught us how to stand up in the world, always making sure he had women out front", she said.
