Sen. John McCain made clear he did not want President Trump to attend his funeral service.
Instead, he chose former Presidents George W. Bush, a Republican, and Barack Obama, a Democrat, to deliver eulogies for him.
Vice President Mike Pence is expected to represent the White House at McCain's funeral service.
It's a final fracture on the tense Trump-McCain relationship: Early in his presidential bid, Trump — who received five deferments to avoid military service in Vietnam — infamously maintained that McCain was not a war hero because he had been captured. He never apologized or walked-back his comments, despite the fact that McCain was imprisoned and tortured in Vietnam for more than five years.
During the time he remained active in the Senate, McCain expressed deep misgivings about Trump's job as President, criticizing his handling of world affairs and the example he has set for the country.
Following McCain's death, Trump did not immediately offer a statement praising McCain's life and career and repeatedly ignored questions about the late senator. He finally offered a brief statement and some prepared remarks late Monday — two full days after McCain's death.
