Just a day after announcing he would be discontinuing treatment for an aggressive brain cancer, Senator John McCain died at 81. "We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history, and we have acquired great wealth and power in the progress".
"But I think with that we had a chance to understand each other more after the war, and you were the one that made a major contribution to building up that link".
"Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here", he wrote.
"We will remember Senator McCain for translating America's commitment into action and for playing a vital role in keeping our alliance strong and capable to address current strategic challenges", he said.
Davis, before he began reading McCain's letter, warned: "This will be somewhat hard'".
The comment was restrained as Trump tweets go, yet fell far short of the statements the White House typically releases when a prominent politician dies, regardless of their party. Notably, he offered no sentiments at all about the main himself - something even McCain's frequent political foe and recent Trump soldier Rudy Giuliani managed to do.
Goalkeeper Loris Karius joins Besiktas from Liverpool
Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is at odds over why fellow shot-stopper Loris Karius was sent out on loan instead of him. Speaking to Het Laatste Nieuws , he said: "I find it weird that Karius was loaned while I also had options to be loaned".
The last person to lie in state at the Capitol was Sen. Although the White House flags were briefly lowered on Saturday night, by Monday they returned to full staff. "The president did express his condolences to the family".
President Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for almost five days after Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy of MA died in 2009.
"The entire focus of the McCain family is on John McCain".
"If the president put out a flowery statement about John McCain's life, the media would criticize it and say it's not consistent with the other things he's said in the past, and it would become a story about the president", Short said during an appearance on CNN. "There really is no room in the McCain family to focus on anything today but him", Davis said at a press conference Monday. They choose to focus on that'.
It also contrasted with the flood of heartfelt tributes that came from both Republicans and Democrats, including former president Barack Obama, as well as Trump's own wife Melania Trump, and from foreign leaders including French President Emmanuel Macron.
John's memorial service is going to be a five-day affair in three separate cities, moving from the Arizona State Capital to the North Phoenix Baptist Church, then to the United States Capitol, the National Cathedral and the U.S. Naval Academy.
