A day after McCain died of brain cancer at 81, his family, friends and congressional and state leaders were working out details of the farewell to the decorated Vietnam War hero, prisoner of war and six-term senator.
However, after widespread criticism came over U.S. media, the flags were again lowered on Monday afternoon as Trump made his first reference to McCain: "Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country".
"Despite our differences on policy and politics", it read in part, "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".

We found absolutely no corroboration for the claim that McCain said this of President Trump before his death on 25 August, and the source - "America Loves Donald Trump" - is a Facebook page run by political troll utilizing fabricated inflammatory memes presented as "satire". Chuck Schumer, formally requested flags at all govenrment buildings remain at half-staff in McCain's honor through his internment. In war and peace, John McCain dedicated himself to service and sacrifice for our country.
