Services for McCain set for Phoenix, Washington, Annapolis

The US Senator John Mc Cain in New York

John McCain's death, President Donald Trump says he respects the senator's "service to our country" and has signed a proclamation to fly the USA flag at half-staff until his burial.

But they were raised on Monday morning, leading to criticism that Trump was unable to put aside political differences to honor McCain, a prisoner of war in Vietnam who went on to serve 35 years in Congress.

President Donald Trump has long feuded with McCain, and is reportedly not invited to his funeral.

Mr Trump has refused to publish a letter drafted by White House staff on the death of Mr McCain.

Mr Trump said vice president Mike Pence would speak at a remembrance ceremony on Friday at the US Capitol.

Pope ‘begs forgiveness’ as archbishop accuses him of ignoring abuse
The pope accepted the resignation of McCarrick, now 88, in July, making him just the second cardinal ever to lose his status. Despite repeated requests from journalists, the Vatican had not responded to the allegations by midday August 26.

"Finally, I have asked General John Kelly, Secretary James Mattis, and Ambassador John Bolton to represent my Administration at his services".

Sen. John McCain, whose more than three-decade career in the Senate irreversibly impacted the tenor of Washington, will lie in state in the US Capitol this week, an honor given to few statesmen. He will be buried on Sunday in Annapolis, Md.

A private burial service next Sunday will conclude almost a week of events honoring the Navy aviator, prisoner of war, congressman, longtime senator and presidential contender.

Republican Senate candidate Kelli Ward apologized Monday for suggesting an announcement by Sen. Trump had previously merely issued condolences to McCain's family via Twitter.

But the timing of the six-term Republican senator's funeral isn't yet known.

Oil price leaps to $74 per barrel as USA inventory drops
This is according to the OPEC revenues fact sheet report, published by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) on Tuesday. Hedge funds and other money managers cut their bullish wagers on USA crude futures to the lowest level since mid-June.

Jim Brown has been on Trump's side in the president's dispute with Black NFL players who have been kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!" On the campaign trail, Trump had controversially said that McCain was "not a war hero" because he was captured in Vietnam.

When Trump signed into a military spending bill named after McCain earlier this month, he declined to mention the senator in his remarks.

Following the service, McCain will lie in state for the remainder of the day and the public will be invited to view his casket.

In his farewell statement issued on Monday McCain said: "We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe". It began when he graduated from the Naval Academy in 1958 and ended Saturday, when the Arizona senator died after battling brain cancer for more than a year.

With his death, McCain leaves behind seven children and wife Cindy. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. "And while he never made it to the presidency, in the Senate, he was the leader that would see a hot spot in the world and just say, we need to go there and stand up for that democracy", she told CNN's "State of the Union".
