US Senator John McCain, a previous wartime captive in Vietnam who kept running for president in 2008 as a free thinker Republican and turned into a conspicuous commentator of President Donald Trump, passed on Saturday at 81 years old.
A congressperson from Arizona for over three decades, McCain had been experiencing cerebrum malignancy since July 2017 and had not been at the U.S. Legislative hall this year. McCain often fought with Trump and his family has said he didn’t need the president to go to his memorial service.
Each of the five living previous US presidents – Barack Obama, George W. Shrub, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Shrub and Jimmy Carter – paid tribute to McCain’s strength and character.
