Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the decision of congressional leaders from both parties Sunday, calling McCain "a great American patriot, a statesman who put his country first and enriched this institution through many years of service".
"Mr. President, just this year, you released presidential proclamations noting the deaths of Barbara Bush and Billy Graham", Denise Rohan, the national commander of the American Legion, said in a public letter to the president Monday.
"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018". This is about a man who constantly talks about supporting veterans and armed forces, and then repeatedly insults a man who was held as a prisoner of war for five and half years.
"I had a lot of time to think over there, and came to the conclusion that one of the most important things in life-along with a man's family-is to make some contribution to his country", McCain said.
Residents and USA officials laid flowers near a concrete sculpture of McCain by the capital's Truc Bach lake, commemorating the site where the former Navy pilot - who died Saturday aged 81 - was shot down and detained during the Vietnam War.

President Donald Trump has long feuded with McCain, and is reportedly not invited to his funeral. Our hearts and prayers are with you!"-but it's the Instagram version of that sentiment that's getting all the attention. I have read about him, and he's not, um, he's an Arab", a woman told McCain in the video clip. According to multiple media reports, he nixed a statement drafted by administration staffers that would have lauded McCain's stellar record of military service.
"Today we lost an American original. Sen". "The vice president, all issued statements that would have been approved by the president before they went out".
Despite the fact he was in spitting distance from the President, Trump ignored Karl and stared blankly at the pool of photographers.
Earlier this month, when he signed a multi-billion dollar defence bill named after McCain, Mr Trump did not say his name.
