Trumps, Obamas, Texas lawmakers react to Sen. John McCain's death

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a two-time presidential hopeful, has died of brain cancer at the age of 81, the New York Times reports.

"It was an honour to meet with Senator McCain on several occasions over recent years".

John McCain fought in Vietnam war and was captured and imprisoned in 1967.

He served four years in the House before Arizona voters elected him to the Senate in 1986 to replace Barry Goldwater, the 1964 Republican presidential nominee revered by conservatives.

Arizona Sen. John McCain has discontinued medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer. Our hearts are with his wife, Cindy, his children, and his grandchildren. "My prayers go out to Senator McCain's friends, family, and constituents during this time - you are in our hearts". But the excitement is only part of it: service - and the willingness to sacrifice - for country is the motivation of every man and woman who does it. John McCain defined service, as a naval aviator and in every role he took on for his country.

He was "one of the most principled people I've ever known", Brown 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".

"Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs".

In New Hampshire that year, McCain defeated George W. Bush in an 18-point blowout, only to be pushed out of the race in SC. "He was an inspirational leader and war hero; a man of integrity and bravery", Peters said.

Michael Cohen prosecutors granted immunity to publisher David Pecker
And in receiving immunity from federal prosecutors, he seems to have given them information about how exactly this process worked. The magazine reports that Pecker and Trump haven't spoken in eight months. "However, I would still vote for him again", she said.

"His honor was being questioned and that's nothing that he takes lightly", said Mark Salter, McCain's biographer and co-author of his new memoir, "The Restless Wave". Fact is. he had surpassed expectations for survival. McCain had been a frequent critic of Trump, whose "America First" ideology McCain believed parted from the country's values.

US President Donald Trump, who once mocked McCain's war record, said he sent his "deepest sympathies and respect".

"We are all in his debt", said former president Obama, the Democrat to whom McCain lost the presidency in 2008.

McCain was finally released on March 14, 1973 but the effects of the crash and torture were evident in his everyday life from that day forward. with a visible limp when he walked and his inability to raise either arm above his shoulders. The world will miss John McCain.

John McCain was born on the eve of World War II, at the dawn of the "American Century" - a time when the USA was at the peak of its political, military and cultural power. That he became a friend is one of the greatest privileges of my life.

John was born on August 29, 1936, in the Coco Solo Naval Air Station within the Panama Canal Zone, which at the time was a United States territory.

The life of the senator from Arizona marked the arc of this journey. John spent over five long years in a prison in Hanoi, but neither fate, nor the presence of great evil, could break him. McCain said that upon capture he was beaten by an angry mob and bayoneted in the groin.
