President Trump Finally Releases Official Statement On McCain And Surprises Everyone (Video)

Trump and McCain have had an embattled relationship during the president’s time in the White House.

Today President Trump decided that he will not attend the funeral for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who died Saturday after a battle with brain cancer.

The American Legion decided to force the President to lower the flag to half-staff.

Earlier Monday, the White House flag had returned to its regular position even as other flags around Washington — including at the US Capitol — remained in the half-staff mourning position.
But on Monday afternoon, the White House once again lowered the flag to half-staff and Trump, in his statement said he “signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment.”

President Trump also decided to give an official statement about McCain’s death!

Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain’s service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

Trump said he has asked Vice President Pence to speak at a memorial service for McCain at the Capitol on Friday and approved military transportation to move the senator’s body from Arizona to Washington,

Trump has passed up multiple chances to personally comment on the death of McCain; he was asked four times to do so following an Oval Office announcement on trade but did not respond to questions.
