President Trump issues a statement showing his respect for the late Senator John McCain.
The White House released a statement on behalf of the president Monday, directing government buildings to fly the flag at half-staff until McCain’s internment.
The president said despite the differences on policy and politics he respects Senator McCain’s service to our country.
He further asked Vice President Mike Pence to offer a statement at the ceremony this Friday honoring the Arizona senator.
