John McCain Does Not Want President Trump at His Funeral

Cyber-bomb Russia Mc Cain begs in new book

A recent report from the New York Times claims that Senator John McCain, 81, who is fighting brain cancer, does not want U.S. President Donald Trump to attend his funeral. McCain was diagnosed 10 months ago; the median survival rate is 14 months.

Several politicians recently visited McCain at his Arizona ranch and at the nearby hospital, where he has been in recovery.

"I don't know how much longer I'll be here", McCain said in an audio excerpt of his forthcoming memoir, The Restless Wave, as NPR reports.

"I don't know how much longer I'll be here. Maybe I'll have another five years", NBC News-affiliate WCNC reported the senator said in the clip. "Maybe I'll have another 5 years. maybe I'll be gone before you hear this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable".

Larson, a classmate of McCain in the Academy's Class of 1958, rose to the rank of four-star admiral and led the institution. Larson graduated at top of their class; McCain was fifth from the bottom.

Meghan McCain tweeted Friday that she was heading home to Arizona "to be with my family" and plans to return to her job on "The View" on Tuesday. Biden told the Times that during his conversation with McCain, the Arizona senator urged him to "not walk away" from politics, but Biden declined to discuss the possibility that he might run for president in 2020 with the newspaper. Joe Lieberman of CT, also a good friend.

Iran's belligerence in the region - its meddling overseas , in particular in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, was not addressed. The US in turn committed to remove sanctions and to seize impeding business with Iran .

McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, remains one of the strongest voices in his party on foreign policy, despite a battle with brain cancer. About three weeks later, Trump called McCain "incompetent", and discounted his experience as a war prisoner in Vietnam. He later went on to say that "He's a war hero because he was captured".

Domenech said Sunday that McCain "lived the life over and over again enough for five or 10 different people", adding that the senator has had a "pretty unbelievable run".

Still bearing a black eye and scar from surgery, McCain gave a thumbs-down signal in a decisive vote to scuttle a Trump-backed Bill to repeal the Obamacare healthcare law.

Trump was probably not going to attend the funeral anyway so the request by McCain to exclude the president of the United States was a preemptive move to snub Trump before the president could snub him.

"I'm not sure what to make of President Trump's convictions", he writes.
