The family of Mr McCain, who fought in Vietnam and was a prominent critic of the Trump administration, has requested that the president stays away from the funeral. John McCain Monday afternoon - as the White House again lowered flags on the grounds to half staff.

"The media quickly ran with a false narrative that I was being insensitive to Senator McCain at a time when he found himself in dire straits", Ward said at the news conference.

President Trump faced criticism for failing to release an official White House statement on McCain's death until Monday, having only recognized McCain's death in a short tweet.

"Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

First lady Melania Trump thanked McCain for his service to the nation, which included more than five years as a prisoner of war and six terms in the Senate.

McCain, 81, died at his ranch in Arizona after a year-long battle with brain cancer.

The 2008 video shows the late senator defending his then-presidential campaign opponent Barack Obama from a McCain supporter, who shared a racist conspiracy theory that Obama was an "Arab".

The Senate has draped John McCain's desk in black fabric and placed a vase of white roses on top.

Lorcaserin has been available in the USA for several years under the name Belviq, but it has yet to be approved for use in Europe. Tests for heart valve damage were done on 3,270 participants, but no significant differences in rates were identified.

With bad blood between them at the boil, McCain reportedly excluded Trump from his funeral ceremonies - a development that Davis confirmed on Monday. At services there, McCain will be honored by several members of the Arizona congressional delegation.

Trump has repeatedly faulted McCain for his dramatic "thumbs-down" on the GOP Obamacare repeal bill, and mocked his Vietnam capture during the campaign.

Bowing to pressure, President Donald Trump on Monday ordered American flags at US buildings lowered to half-staff for Sen.

McCain will be buried on Sunday in a private ceremony at the US Naval Academy chapel.

Former president George W. Bush, who defeated McCain for the 2000 Republican presidential nomination, called his one-time political rival "man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order" and a "friend whom I'll deeply miss". "I like people that weren't captured".

The Washington Post reported on Monday that Trump rejected a proposed statement that would have praised McCain for his military service and described him as a "hero".

"We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been". "And we can try, as he summoned us to try, to restore the Senate to its rightful place in our national political life", Schumer said about the Republican he'd worked alongside since the early 1980s. "I've never seen in all my years in Washington this kind of thing, where the American Legion has to write the president and demand they lower the flag to half-staff, where both Senate leaders asked that he lower the flag to half-staff".
