Meghan McCain Shares Heartbreaking Tribute to Late Father John McCain

Meghan McCain Shares Heartbreaking Tribute to Late Father John McCain

John McCain, a war hero and towering figure in U.S. politics, known for reaching across the aisle in an increasingly divided nation, died Saturday following a battle with brain cancer.

It is reported by Ukrainian Pravda with reference to The Washington Post.

McCain's wife, Cindy, and his daughter, Meghan, both sent heartfelt messages on Twitter about his death.

Mikulski, who was the longest-serving woman in the history of Congress and Maryland's longest-tenured US senator, recalled that she and McCain both moved together to the Senate from the House of Representatives in 1987.

Take a dive through his words over the years.

In a letter read by longtime aide Rick Davis on Monday, McCain encouraged Americans to unite around the ideals that connect them rather than focus on divisions. He had battled brain cancer.

McCain had an unsuccessful run for president as a self-styled maverick Republican in 2008 but lost to Democrat Barack Obama, who went on to become the first black United States president.

He later returned to work.

In a statement Saturday night, a short time after McCain died, Schumer said, "Nothing will overcome the loss of Senator McCain, but so that generations remember him I will be introducing a resolution to rename the Russell building after him".

Trump accuses Google of "suppressing" positive news about his administration, vows action
Trump took to Twitter to accuse the firm of suppressing conservative voices to hide news reports that portray him in a good light. Trump's claims and that of the study were quickly debunked as internet users started conducting various searches on Google.

In early September, the Senator said that "the prognosis is very good", but for a couple of weeks admitted that in the fight against brain cancer, doctors give him a "very poor prognosis".

McCain began his career as a naval bomber pilot and he survived five-and-a-half years as a Vietnam prisoner of war.

McCain, who represented Arizona in the Senate and House of Representatives for 35 years, had a reputation for speaking his mind, which led to a running feud with President Donald Trump. "My father told me a long time ago, our freedoms aren't free, there's people making sacrifices every day".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called McCain a "fascinating personality". "God bless John McCain".

The decorated politician's family said they are "immensely grateful for the support and kindness of all his caregivers over the a year ago, and for the continuing outpouring of concern and affection from John's many friends and associates, and the many thousands of people who are keeping him in their prayers".

On Friday, the McCain family revealed Sen. Saturday while honoring his legacy as a lawmaker and war hero.

McCain provided one of the most dramatic moments in recent Senate history in July 2017 when he voted against a Trump-backed bill that would have repealed the healthcare law pushed through by President Barack Obama. "Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love", McCain continued.

Trump and McCain had a bitter relationship that lasted through McCain's final days. McCain later said he regretted picking Palin.

McCain ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000, then won it in 2008 before losing the general election to Obama.
