  • Arizona residents line up to mourn Senator John McCain

Congressional leaders were to deliver remarks.

John McCain's casket has arrived at the U.S. Capitol where it will lie in state. and TMZ will be live streaming it when it begins at approximately 11 AM ET. On Saturday, a memorial service will be held at the National Cathedral, where former Presidents Bush, a Republican, and Barack Obama, a Democrat, will speak.

Trump and McCain clashed on a range of policy issues.

On Friday, McCain will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol.

They were all wearing yellow "Vietnamese Refugee Community" T-shirts with the words "We salute our hero Senator John McCain". John McCain, R-Ariz., is carried by an Armed Forces body bearer team to a hearse, Thursday, Aug. 30, 2018, at Andrews Air Force Base, Md. After the American Legion wrote a letter to the president imploring him to recognize McCain, Trump relented.

The onetime Navy fighter pilot endured 5-1/2 years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam after his aircraft was shot down over Hanoi.

Trump obtained deferments during the Vietnam War for his college education and then for bone spurs in his heels.

Biden and McCain held a decades-long friendship throughout their Senate careers, and in an interview alongside Meghan McCain past year, Biden described her father as "one of my best friends".

McCain's remains were flown by military aircraft to Washington on Thursday from Arizona, which he has represented in Congress since his first election in 1982. The visitation was to continue as long as people waited in line, said Rick Davis, McCain's former presidential campaign manager.




On Thursday, Michael Fellars was among those awaiting the motorcade outside the church. But Biden, who is considering challenging Trump in 2020, made what some saw as a veiled reference to the president. "He'd part company with you if you lacked the basic values of decency, respect, knowing this project is bigger than yourself".

"He's done so much for us", said Costalez, who stood watch earlier this week while McCain's body was at a funeral home. John McCain as a brother, with 'a lot of family fights'.

At a private service on what would have been his 82nd birthday, Mr McCain's widow, Cindy, patted the casket draped with the American flag before leaning over and resting her head on it for a moment.

He told McCain's family he understood that there was nothing anyone could do to ease their pain.

Biden recalled "the sheer joy that crossed his face when he knew he was about to take the stage of the senate floor and start a fight". "God, he loved it".

Mr McCain's longtime chief of staff, Grant Woods spoke about the senator's "terribly bad driving" and his sense of humour - which drew a chuckle.

What was perhaps one of the stranger sections of the interview was when Trump claimed that he had done everything to respect McCain that "they requested" - basically an admission that he had been forced to pay respects by his aides.

Mourners waving American flags and McCain signs lined the route five days after he died of brain cancer aged 81.
