John McCain Dead at 81

Flake says forgiveness is biggest lesson learned from McCain

Colonel Trần Trọng Duyệt praised McCain for both his conduct during his imprisonment and later work as a USA politician. "Now we're gonna do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can.' And, at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well lived". I feel that way even now as I prepare for the end of my life. "The president did express his condolences to the family".

Our family is immensely grateful for the support and kindness of all his caregivers over the past year, and for the continuing outpouring of concern and affection from John's many friends and associates, and the many thousands of people who are keeping him in their prayers.

Rick Davis, who was also McCain's campaign manager and longtime adviser, said at a news conference in Phoenix that Vice President Pence will serve as the Trump administration designee at a ceremony honoring McCain on Friday at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

Karen Travers tweeted "Flags at the White House were lowered to half staff this weekend for the passing of John McCain but this morning they are back to full staff".

At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain's remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy.

Several staff members believed the official White House statement, which went through an internal approval process, would be released at the time of the Arizona Republican's death, which occurred on Saturday.

"And my father genuinely loved and respected John McCain", he said.

CNN has reported that McCain chose Barack Obama and George W. Bush-the two men who kept him from the White House-to eulogize him and didn't want the President to attend his funeral.

The Vietnam News Agency said Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc sent a message of condolence to McCain's family and U.S. Senate leaders, while Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh paid respects to McCain at the embassy.

Tributes have been paid in Vietnam to John McCain, the American senator and former navy pilot shot down over Hanoi during the U.S. war with the southeast Asian nation.

During the Vietnam War, McCain served as a Navy pilot. Notably absent from the list of dignitaries who will give tribute to the two-time presidential candidate, six-term senator and Vietnam War hero is President Trump. Not to mention, McCain wrote an August 2017 op-ed condemning the president for having "no experience of public office" and being "often poorly informed" and "impulsive in his speech and conduct". "We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down".
