McCain in a book he co-wrote, "The Restless Wave", scheduled to be released later this month, expressed disdain for what he perceives as Trump's admiration for autocratic leaders, according to the Times.
"An American president does not lead the Free World by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections", McCain said in a blistering statement in March. Those folks who are close enough to McCain and who were privy enough to be let in on his plans have shared this little tidbit with the public - McCain doesn't want Trump at his funeral. Biden followed McCain's closest friends, Sen.
The senator, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, said in an audio excerpt this week of his forthcoming memoir, "I don't know how much longer I'll be here", according to a clip aired by NPR.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is now battling brain cancer, has reportedly discussed his wishes for his funeral, which include President Donald Trump not being present and former President Barack Obama delivering a eulogy.
He hasn't been seen in public since December, just before he was hospitalized for a viral infection at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington.
The Times report on McCain could not be independently verified by the time of this article's publication.
This news about McCain making a request that Trump doesn't attend his funeral comes on the heels of Barbra Bush's funeral last month.
NBC News previously reported the Bush and Obama invitations. Two former presidents will most likely be there and play a key role in the funeral service.
Domenech says, "We appreciate all of the support that we've been given by a lot of different folks who have come out and met with him over the past couple of weeks".
"Going home to Arizona to be with my family", she tweeted. McCain cast a decisive vote against legislation Trump pushed that was created to effectively repeal Obamacare.
There is so much more to focus on besides his disdain for Donald Trump.
In the documentary, McCain calls his decision to not pick Lieberman "another mistake I made". This is not only for his sake but for his family's sake as well.
