McCain was the son and grandson of admirals and followed them to the US Naval Academy.

"An American hero who served our country for 60 years, Senator John McCain inspired a generation of warriors".

On August 24, the McCain family released a statement announcing that the politician would be ending his treatment after over a year.

Following the senator's death, Trump posted a tweet that offered his "deepest sympathies and respect" to McCain's family but made no mention of McCain's storied service in the military and in the Senate. Our hearts and prayers are with you!"-but it's the Instagram version of that sentiment that's getting all the attention".

President Trump rejected a formal statement from aides honoring Sen.

Late Monday afternoon, the flag flying at the White House was lowered to half-staff to honor Sen.

McCain has had a reputation for speaking his mind, which led to a running feud with President Donald Trump. Trump, when he returned to Washington, altered his stance, but nearly daily assails the investigation into the election interference.

After Trump's joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, in which Trump did not endorse United States intelligence findings on Russian election meddling over Putin's denial, McCain said: "The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate". "But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake".

"On the behalf of The American Legion's two million wartime veterans, I strongly urge you to make an appropriate presidential proclamation noting Senator McCain's death and legacy of service to our nation, and that our nation's flag be half-staffed through his internment". But Cindy McCain's politics are largely unknown.

Outside the United States, world leaders lauded McCain's role and presence overseas. "He devoted his entire life to his country".

Leahy said McCain was willing to defend "the Senate's special and independent role in American government".

McCain's plane was shot down over Hanoi in 1967 during a bombing run. He truly did put his country first and his life of service to the United States of America will long be remembered.

"Later on when he became a US senator, he and Sen". John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks at a rally in Davenport, Iowa.

Sen. John McCain's Vietnamese jailer said he respected his former inmate and felt sad about his death, as others in Vietnam paid their respects to the former us navy pilot who became a prisoner of war and later was instrumental in bringing the wartime foes together.
