Senator McCain will lie in state at the United States Capitol's rotunda.

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.

President Donald Trump has faced criticism for his statement following the death of John McCain, which did not say anything kind about the late senator and war hero. They will recall his efforts with the late Senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy and others to achieve a resolution of the position of out-of-status immigrants, including the Irish, in the United States. McCain died of brain cancer Saturday in his home state of Arizona, which he had served over six terms in the U.S. Senate.

McCain died on Saturday evening surrounded by his family in Arizona. "If you look at John McCain and his record before he went to Vietnam, before his imprisonment, then you compare it with what happened to him afterward, there's virtually no comparison", Rather said. "We respect people who have gone before us and what he had to endure - just to be in the presence of someone like that, I appreciated that", Beckford said. John McCain, but it was never sent out, a person familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN.

Flake said he also admired that McCain could see the good in his political opponents. It included more than five years as a wounded and tortured prisoner of war in Vietnam - for which he received a slew of decorations. "With the senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family", his office said in a statement.

McCain "was a man of honor, a true patriot in the best sense of the word", Jimmy Carter wrote.

Juventus continued their winning start to the Serie A season with a resounding 2-0 win over Lazio on Saturday evening. Nonetheless, he did record an unintentional assist for Mandzukic's decisive second goal on the night.

Earlier this month, Trump also did not mention McCain when thanking multiple members of Congress involved in passing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act at a signing ceremony at Fort Drum, New York, despite the bill being named after the senator.

McCain reportedly requested that Obama and Bush deliver eulogies at his funeral and that Trump not attend.

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.

Blair Wilke served in the Navy alongside McCain when he was the commanding officer of the VA-174 in Jacksonville, Florida.

"These occasions are either authorized by a congressional resolution or approved by the congressional leadership, when permission is granted by survivors", the Architect of the Capitol instructs on its website.
