Former President Barack Obama who ran against Sen. John Mc Cain in the 2008 presidential election paid tribute to the senato

Trump also posted about McCain's death on his Instagram page - in a fashion that drew near-immediate condemnation.

On Capitol Hill, McCain became close friends with Senator Lindsey Graham and former senator Joe Lieberman - a trio dubbed the "Three Amigos". "Kathryn and I join a grateful nation in keeping his wife, Cindy, and the entire McCain family in our thoughts and prayers".

The longtime Arizona Republican died Saturday after a yearlong battle with brain cancer. John McCain was one of them.

But we shared, despite our differences, a fidelity for something higher: the ideals for which generations of USA citizens and immigrants have equally fought, marched and sacrificed themselves, he added. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!" he added. Most recently, despite supporting a diplomatic solution to the Iran nuclear crisis, McCain harshly criticized former President Barack Obama's approach to the situation because, among other things, it left Israel vulnerable.

"And yet through it all he never lost sight of what he believed most: Country First".

"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. (2328 GMT) on August 25, 2018".




From his selfless service in uniform to his time in Congress fighting for those who serve and have served, Senator McCain dedicated his life to this nation and his fellow citizens. "John McCain. We appreciate everything McCain has done for our country". "The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad- but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us".

US President Donald Trump offered his condolences to the family of John McCain, who died on Saturday.

As a member of the U.S. Senate, he promoted a strong and well-funded military, sought to recover the remains of servicemen were were list as POW/MIA for decades, and helped heal the wounds of the Vietnam conflict by returning to visit the 'Hanoi Hilton, ' where he was once held captive.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said that it is "a sad day for the United States and our country has lost a decorated war hero and statesman". "He will always be listed among freedom's most gallant and faithful servants".

Following his death, American presidents, past and present, began issuing statements depicting the man for who he really was, a hero, statesman and an incredibly talented politician.

"I will never forget a debate in Arizona, where Sen McCain spent the evening joking with Barbara and me", she wrote.

Meghan McCain said Saturday that she and her family will continue to live out her father's legacy.
