Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer proposed renaming the Senate's oldest office building in McCain's honor after the veteran Republican senator died Saturday from brain cancer.

Trump said he had asked Vice President Mike Pence to speak at a ceremony honouring McCain at the Capitol on Friday and said other administration officials would attend memorial services. The flag atop the White House flew at half-staff over the weekend but was raised Monday and then lowered again amid criticism.

Trump released an official statement on the death of the late senator two days after his death, and the White House re-lowered its flags to half-staff amid pubic pressure to keep them there until McCain's burial.

He said, "Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country".

"Our hearts and prayers are going to the family of Sen".

I know a lot of people are probably like "I don't know", but I feel comfortable within myself and the decision I've made. He added: "I'm sad to move on, absolutely, but excited by the challenge at Renault".

Americans in Washington, D.C., and beyond are mourning the late Sen.

Keep in mind, in John McCain we're talking about someone who was unusually successful in making friends and working with people across the political spectrum. "I lived and died a proud American", McCain wrote. "Because when you found yourself on the other side of that table, as I think all of us learned, you were in for a different kind of unforgettable experience", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in opening remarks.

Flags elsewhere in the capital had remained at half-staff Monday, and it was widely believed that Trump was demonstrating his continued resentment toward McCain, who provided the pivotal vote preventing Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act.

McCain had a tumultuous relationship with President Donald Trump, whom Graham has defended in recent months.

"He had his clashes with President Trump", Robinson acknowledged but adding "He saw who trump was, but he did something about it".

McCain closed his letter by citing his loss to Obama in the 2008 presidential election, stating he was departing his life with the same sense of "heartfelt faith" in America despite its challenges today.

Throughout McCain's illness, Trump continued to publicly snub him - including at a recent appearance in which the president declined to say McCain's name when signing a bill that was named for him.

A family spokesman issued a farewell statement from McCain in which he said of the United States: "We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries". 'I think any discussion of what any one individual has done or said, if you look at the gravity of all he reactions around the world - world leaders our allies - it's been vast.

Trump also authorized full military honors for McCain when he is buried on Sunday on Hospital Hill at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Friction increased earlier this year after word surfaced that a West Wing aide had been dismissive of McCain during a closed-door meeting. "Later, we will discuss ways to permanently memorialize his legacy and service to our country", he said.
