  • McCain's 106-Year-Old Mom to Attend His Washington Services

McCain's family had made clear the president was not welcome at the funeral for the six-term senator and decorated war veteran at the Washington National Cathedral.

Keep on talking, even to rivals.

McCain's remains were moved to the National Cathedral for the service on Saturday morning after he lay in state at the Capitol Rotunda.

George W Bush said McCain "loved freedom with a passion".

"And our disagreements didn't go away during these private conversations". But Obama spoke of a deep respect for the late senator.

Throughout the day, Trump tweeted gripes about trade talks with Canada and the Justice Department.

But it took a daughter to capture the measure of the man - to remember him as the "fierce conscience of the nation's best self" and to thrust the rhetorical dagger that was the culmination of a uniquely political week of mourning. Cheney was there because he had been Bush's vice president.

It was not long before other visitors began placing signs and notes honoring John McCain for his service as a soldier and a senator.
