Graham added, "I've lost one of my dearest friends and mentor".

The Vietnam War veteran represented Arizona in the Senate and House of Representatives for 35 years.

McCain's wife, Cindy, and his daughter, Meghan, both sent heartfelt messages on Twitter about his death. McCain, who died Saturday at 81, is a decorated Vietnam War hero who spent more than five years as a prisoner-of-war and served in the Senate for six terms.

"The President has inexplicably shown our adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies", McCain said.

Throughout his long tenure in Congress, McCain played his role with trademark verve, at one hearing dismissing a protester by calling out, "Get out of here, you low-life scum".

Trump called off Pompeo's North Korea visit after belligerent letter
A United Nations agency recently reported it had not seen any indication that nuclear activities in North Korea have stopped. Pompeo and Kono "agreed that pressure must continue until (North Korea) denuclearizes", the statement read.

On January 17, 2012, McCain, along with four other United States senators, visited the Philippines and met with then President Benigno Aquino III and former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario where they discussed wide-range of issues, foremost of which were the freedom of navigation and the South China Sea or the West Philippine Sea.

Also notable were the times Mr McCain held his tongue in service of a party or political gain.

Even while he battled cancer and moved back to his Arizona home for treatment, McCain continued to stay relevant in the political arena.

After he delivered a stirring tribute to McCain on the floor, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked about naming the building after McCain and said only "we'll be talking about the best ways to honor Sen".

Salmon, who is now the vice president of government affairs at ASU, said McCain left a bipartisan legacy and established a tradition of putting country over party. McCain was long known for his military service as a war hero, a presidential nominee, running against then-Senator Barack Obama in 2008.

City officials canceled Ultimate Sports Camp, Adventure Camp and Mobile Recreation on Monday, along with outdoor athletic events. The air in the Custer/Lynden area remained " unhealthy " into the afternoon, following " hazardous " readings at 9 p.m.

"John McCain's life is proof that some truths are timeless", he said in a statement.

Following the senator's death, Trump posted a tweet that offered his "deepest sympathies and respect" to McCain's family but made no mention of McCain's storied service in the military and in the Senate. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks at a rally in Tampa, Fla.

"John McCain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics", Obama said in a statement. It's not entirely surprising as Trump has been criticizing McCain regularly ever since he launched his president campaign in 2015. "Today I am praying for him and his family".

McCain was a tough critic of Russian Federation and a supporter of the aggressive role of the United States against the extremist group DL. He leaves behind a legacy of courage and conviction - I hope we all can reflect on these values as we work together to heal and advance America.

A police escort accompanied the hearse that carried his body, as a fiery sunset cast its last light over the countryside McCain loved so dearly.
