"Maverick" Senator John McCain dies

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 George W. Bush, who defeated McCain in the 2000 Republican presidential primaries, also

In 1967, his plane was shot down on a bombing mission over North Vietnam. Most brought flowers. One man offered a folded US flag. He was refused medical treatment and beaten with a bayonet.

During his three decades in the Senate, McCain - the son and grandson of four-star admirals who graduated from the Naval Academy and served his country as a fighter pilot - was known as a staunch advocate for freedom around the world.

In his recently released memoir, "The Restless Wave" McCain expressed his hope that the polarized political climate will, quote "return to the purposes and practices that distinguish our history". But he refused, adhering to the military code of "first in, first out".

McCain had been a frequent critic of Trump, whose "America First" ideology McCain believed parted from the country's values. Mr McCain was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour in July previous year and had been undergoing treatment.

That ship is now moored off of Manhattan's West Side, and earlier this year, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum honored McCain with its Intrepid Lifetime Achievement Award.

Speaking to the Economic Club of Canada months ahead of the election he would lose to Barack Obama, McCain lauded the pact for doubling cross-border trade, creating 25 million jobs in the USA and four million in Canada.

On the shores of a still and peaceful lake on the edge of downtown Hanoi, the inscription on a faded monument stands as a reminder of a violent event 51 years ago.

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".
