John McCain, who has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for more than a year, doesn't want President Trump to attend his funeral and prefers Vice President Pence to be there, according to a New York Times report.

In a tweet that was deleted, Domenech said the 81-year-old senator asked him to take care of his daughter, according to a news report.

McCain and Trump have had a tumultuous relationship since the president came bursting onto the political scene. Lieberman, who visited McCain at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix two weeks ago.

Kevin Curran: From a non-computer point of you I didn't know the like aggression, I just don't believe that it is ever helpful by leaders especially, I think we should always be looking to close the gaps, we have more in common then we don't have and I think it's never helpful, and I would also caution against it. Russian Federation has been blamed for a lot of attacks by the United Sates, and the United States are blamed, and then North Korea gets the blame, and China, of course, there's certain enemies that the United States have and they'll show up time and time again.




When it is time to mourn and say goodbye to John McCain, the US Senator has already taken that decision out of Trump's hands. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable. "The way he speaks about them is appalling", said McCain, who still chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee despite his long medical absence from Washington. Edward Kennedy, at age 77 in 2009, and Biden's son Beau at 46 in 2015. Joe Lieberman of CT, also a good friend.

Trump did not attend the recent funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush in Houston, Texas, in order "to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush Family and friends attending the service", the White House said last month. McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential campaign was then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

"He's not a war hero", Trump said. He later went on to say that "He's a war hero because he was captured".

And last summer, the U.S. leader criticised the Arizona politician for his "no" vote that helped doom a key part of his Obamacare repeal bill in the Senate. "And by doing so with Vladimir Putin, President Trump insulted every Russian citizen who was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election to determine their country's future, including the countless Russian patriots who have risked so much to protest and resist Putin's regime". "Flattery secures his friendship, criticism his enmity".
