Washington says goodbye to John McCain

As previously reported, Meghan slammed the President at the National Cathedral, taking aim at Trump's campaign slogan when she said, "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great".

The private ceremony in Annapolis, Maryland, was as carefully planned as the rest of McCain's farewell tour, which began in Arizona after he died August 25 from brain cancer and stretched to Washington. "And to me, he was a friend whom I'll deeply miss".

McCain's funeral puts him back in the spotlight a few miles from Trump's doorstep, in the city where the senator, who died last Saturday at 81, worked and collected friends and enemies, some in both camps at different times.

She later added, "We live in an era where we knock down old American heroes for all their imperfections when no leader wants to admit to fault or failure". Other speakers there will include former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former senator Joe Lieberman and Meghan McCain, the senator's daughter.

But social media users also blasted President Trump for comments he made during Sen.

"The America of John McCain", she declared with a steely stare, "has no need to be made great again because America was always great".

At the cathedral, Mrs. McCain broke down as opera singer Renee Fleming sang "Danny Boy", at the request of the music-loving late senator. Dan Sullivan who previously delivered similar sentiments about McCain, spoke on the many facets of McCain's life, from military serviceman to politician. The two were noted rivals, with Trump mocking McCain's history as a prisoner of war and McCain vocally opposing the polarizing president.

At the U.S. Capitol on Friday, Vice President Pence remembered McCain as a champion of America's armed forces. John McCain - "a drum major for courage, truth and justice" - as he lay in state at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

Typhoon Jebi: Japan scrambles to evacuate thousands from Kansai airport
Vehicles lie piled in a heap due to strong winds from typhoon Jebi in Kobe, Hyogo prefecture in Japan on September 5, 2018. Additionally, New Chitose Airport near Sapporo in northern Japan was closed on Thursday due to an natural disaster .

But then it's hard for anyone to match patriotic credentials with John McCain.

The Arizona senator had asked Mr Obama and Mr Bush to speak at the service to highlight the bridge-building that he espoused.

The burial caps a week of memorials for the Vietnam war veteran. On free trade and globalization, even McCain's most loyal ally, Lindsey Graham, was able to see that the center had moved and many Americans wanted more protectionist policies. "But for all our differences, for all of the times we sparred, I never tried to hide, and I think John came to understand, the long-standing admiration that I had for him".

Meghan McCain's pointed rhetoric also appears to challenge Trump's now infamous dismissal of her father's service during the Vietnam War, when he was held captive for five years and repeatedly tortured.

But if he were to bring his own children or grandchildren to visit McCain's final resting place at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, where he will be buried Sunday, Ryan said he would tell them: "This is one of the bravest souls our nation has ever produced".

The senator was buried next to his best friend from Annapolis days, Chuck Larson, who died in 2014.

Meghan McCain maintained a clear voice through her tears as she praised her father's devotion to his country and family.
