Vietnamese praise John McCain for 'healing the wounds of war'

"Well I felt moved because John McCain is an honorable man", said one visitor. Beginning in 1980, the GOP fielded nine presidential nominees, each of whom displayed exemplary patriotism and fundamental decency.

Two former presidents are expected to speak at US Senator John McCain's service and he will lie in state in both Washington and Arizona as part of a cross-country funeral procession ending with his burial at the US Naval Academy, according to plans taking shape on Sunday. Win or lose, these candidates won respect - even affection - from those who opposed them as well as from supporters.

A formal ceremony will take place in the Rotunda at approximately 11 a.m., on Friday, honoring Senator McCain's life and service to the nation.

Trump and McCain were at bitter odds until the end. But in a state with a deeply divided Republican Party, where McCain was a towering but divisive figure, the choice is far more complicated.

Condolence messages also poured in from neighboring Pakistan, a country McCain visited several times.

McCain's daughter Meghan was sharply critical of the congresswoman this month after she mimicked Trump and neglected to mention the full name of the "John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act".

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union Sunday morning, Flake said he has been a longtime fan of McCain.

Republican Kelli Ward unsuccessfully challenged Mr McCain in a 2016 primary and was now seeking a different Arizona Senate seat in the November midterm elections.

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

Senator McCain will lie in state at the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday.

His family has said he did not want the President to attend his funeral.

The break with precedent of previous presidents - who have typically released effusive official statements for noteworthy Americans upon their death - underscored the bitter relationship between the two men, Trump's continued anger toward McCain, and the substantive and stylistic differences between them, people close to both men said.

From McCain's fellow Arizonan, Sen.

"As you go through life, you meet few truly great people".

All three represent a sharp break from the brand of conservatism McCain professed for most of his career - although he too pulled a bit to the Trumpian right in 2010 when, facing a primary challenge, he dropped his support for a more moderate immigration approach and campaigned to "build the dang fence".
