The White House lowered flags to half-staff on Sunday (Aug 26) in honour of Mr McCain.

He unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000, then won it in 2008. Former President George W. Bush will give a eulogy at the National Cathedral.

Other world leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, released similar statements. "There's been few leaders that have ever sacrificed as much as John McCain".

His grey hair turned snow white while he was in captivity. His Twitter feed was largely silent except for retweets of his own posts criticizing the investigation into Russian election interference and boasting about the growing economy. "Fantastic numbers on consumer spending released on Friday!" Later Sunday, he accused the news media of giving Obama credit for his accomplishments, posting an excerpt of a weeks-old piece from the Washington Times.

"John McCain was led by the firm conviction that the sense of all political work lies in service to freedom, democracy and the rule of law", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a statement.

Now, the man who ran the prison at the time, former Col. Tran Trong Duyet, says he respects McCain and feels sad about his passing, ABC reports.

McCain frequently criticized Trump for his behavior and policies, and dramatically cast the deciding vote to not repeal the Affordable Care Act a year ago, an act that drew a round of angry tweets from Trump.

Woods, a former Arizona attorney general and McCain aide, is another possibility.

Just hours before the death of US Senator John McCain, a onetime political rival suggested that his decision to end cancer treatment could have been a political move created to hurt her campaign. Ducey's office has heard from Vice President Mike Pence's aides about the choice, a person familiar with the discussions said today.

Pham Gia Minh, a 62-year-old businessman who signed the condolence book at the embassy, said he witnessed Vietnamese civilians being killed by the U.S bombings of North Vietnam, including on Christmas in Hanoi in 1972, but he admired McCain for overcoming the hard past to build better ties between the two countries. He has also complained to allies about McCain's role in handing over a copy of a disputed dossier detailing allegations against him to the Federal Bureau of Investigation after the 2016 election.

"These were bitter contests, both of them", said Senator Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, and "to ask them to speak at your funeral, and for them to be honoured at the opportunity, that tells you all you need to know". McCain as a friend.

"Initially, Donald liked McCain". "The memory of John McCain will remain in our hearts forever". "He said that he was a maverick who was doing different stuff".

McCain castigated Trump in July for his summit with Putin, calling their joint news conference in Helsinki "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory". "The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake".

"He had a joy about politics and a love for his country that was unmatched", said Senator Amy Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat.

After Trump's joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, in which Trump did not endorse U.S. intelligence findings on Russian election meddling over Putin's denial, McCain said: "The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate". A formal ceremony honoring his life and service to the nation will take place at about 11 a.m. ET and will be shown live on CNN. The last lawmaker to receive this honor was Democratic Sen. Trump's approval is close to 90 percent among Republicans.

A black hearse, accompanied by a police motorcade, could be seen driving away from the ranch near Sedona where McCain spent his final weeks.
