John McCain dies at the age of 81

Obama, who ran against the Republican senator from the western state of Arizona in the 2008 presidential election and defeated him, noted how despite their different generations, backgrounds and politics, "we saw this country as a place where anything is possible". Other former presidents are not only planning to attend, but at least two plan to speak about the American hero.

McCain is expected to be remembered at ceremonies in Arizona and Washington this coming week or next, if the family prefers to give more time for Congress to return to the Capitol from its summer recess.

"I felt compelled to come out here and bring some flowers", said Robert Gibb, an American in Hanoi who placed a bouquet of yellow chrysanthemums at the foot of the monument after hearing the news of McCain's death on Sunday morning.

Trump had feuded with McCain for years, most notably in 2016 when Trump said McCain was "not a war hero" because he was captured by North Vietnamese soldiers. Trump's tweet was fairly generic.

In his darkest hour in Vietnam, McCain's will had been broken and he signed a confession that said, "I am a black criminal and I have performed deeds of an air pirate". "He denies everything, but Melania isn't stupid, and she has a good grasp on what's reality and what's actual fake news".

British Airways, for its part, said it was cancelling its London-Tehran service as "the operation is now not commercially viable". The airlines' decision, however, was welcomed by Israel's Prime Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday.


Tributes to McCain continued to pour in from former USA presidents, members of Congress and foreign leaders while Trump golfed on Sunday.

In sharp contrast to an array of similarly worded sympathies and praises, expressed by U.S. lawmakers, former presidents and foreign leaders, on Saturday Trump instead tweeted briefly: "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

"He was a warrior, he was also a peacemaker and of course he fought and suffered during the Vietnam War, but then later as a senator, he was one of the leaders who helped bring our countries back together and helped the United States and Vietnam normalize our relationship and now become partners and friends", Kritenbrink said. "The memory of John McCain will remain in our hearts forever". Our country owes a lot to John McCain and we will greatly miss him.

Former Senator Norm Coleman, the head of the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), said, "Senator McCain was a patriot and a fighter".

"Nobody can take away from him the courage that he had", Huckabee said, noting how McCain refused to be released from captivity unless his fellow prisoners were, too.

Former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama issued a statement sending their "heartfelt condolences" to McCain's wife, Cindy and their family. John McCain conducted by CBN News' Chief Political Correspondent David Brody when he rode with McCain to New Hampshire on the "Straight Talk Express" in 2007.

"He was the most honest politician I think I've ever known", Roddey said.

As Hume points out, it doesn't contain a "kind word about McCain himself".

John Sidney McCain III was born in 1936 in the Panama Canal zone, where his father was stationed in the military.
