Schumer Wants to Rename Senate Office Building for McCain

Привіт з того світу Маккейн запросив на свій похорон одного з головних ворогів Путіна – новини

"Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment", Trump said in his statement.

Finally, under pressure from veterans and members of Congress, Trump said in a statement later on Monday that he respected McCain's service to the nation and ordered flags to half-staff.

"America will miss her dedicated son, her stalwart champion, her elder statesman", McConnell said as McCain's desk on the Senate floor sat draped in black cloth and adorned with vase of white flowers.

Since that momentous political defeat, Trump had, in speeches at rallies across the country, frequently mocked the thumbs-down gesture McCain used to torpedo the legislation.

John McCain will be memorialized by past presidents and Senate colleagues from both political parties in Arizona and Washington D.C this week.

Facebook on Monday defended its progress in a country where many people use it as a primary source of news and communication. The Myanmar government was sent an advance copy of the United Nations report in line with standard practice.

Even after Senator John McCain's death, President Trump has made no secret of his disdain for the man. Hours after McCain succumbed to cancer on Saturday, Trump reportedly nixed a White House statement that called the senator a "hero", instead offering a single, anodyne tweet that conspicuously eschewed any personal praise. McCain, who died Saturday at 81, is a decorated Vietnam War hero who spent more than five years as a prisoner-of-war and served in the Senate for six terms.

In his own statement, Trump, who was not invited to attend McCain's funeral, said he had asked Vice President Mike Pence "to offer an address at the ceremony honoring" McCain at the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

In the interim, through most of Monday, confusion reigned across the federal government, with flags flying at half-staff over the U.S. Capitol and at hundreds of national parks, but at full-staff over the Pentagon and the U.S. Supreme Court. The Russell Building now houses the Senate Armed Services Committee offices.

The request contrasts with the White House, which raised its flags back to full staff on Monday after lowering them on Sunday.

Flake told CNN's Jake Tapper that he visited McCain a day before he died at his Cornville, Arizona ranch.

On this note, HBO unveiled their lineup for the next few months and as always, Game of Thrones is the jewel in their crown. A Sky New Zealand spokesperson says "There is no news on when Game of Thrones will air at this stage".

On Sunday, he emphasized that the building would be better named to honor McCain, as the late Arizona senator was an "antidote when he saw bigotry".

The flags at the White House, which were lowered over the weekend to mark the death of Sen.

"John McCain had his office just right near mine in the Russell building", said Flake. The two had a long-running feud. Others have included 11 US presidents dating to Abraham Lincoln, including four who were assassinated; two vice presidents; six other members of Congress; three military leaders; and the unknown soldiers from World Wars I and II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

After Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of MA died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for five days.
