HRC President Issues Statement on the Passing of Sen. John McCain

Trump has been vocal about his dislike for McCain, who died Saturday more than a year after he was diagnosed with brain cancer.

"Now is a time for remembering and honouring a consequential life well lived", Ruiz's statement said.

"Back in the 2008 election, he said to me that he thought the Republicans needed someone like McCain - something different", said Chris Ruddy, a longtime Trump friend.

"This is a rare and distinct occurrence for a truly special man", Republican Governer Doug Ducey said in a tweet.
