Trump offered Senator McCain's family his blessing on Twitter writing: "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain". John McCain, who died Saturday after battling cancer for more than a year, recalling fond memories of the beloved war hero turned six-term lawmaker."Great nations require great sacrifice from their leaders", House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Maria Bartiromo during an interview on "Sunday Morning Futures".

Former President Jimmy Carter called McCain "a man of honor, a true patriot in the best sense of the word". He told C-SPAN it isn't hard for him to go back.

"I want to watch the hawks hunt from the sycamore, and then take my leave bound for a place near my old friend Chuck Larson in the cemetery on the Severn back where it began", McCain wrote. "I hold no ill will toward them". "There's certainly some individual guards who were very cruel and inflicted a lot of pain on me and others but there's certainly no sense in me hating the Vietnamese".
