Arizona Senator John McCain had been diagnosed with brain cancer last year. Last week, McCain’s people sent a statement to the White House saying that Trump is not invited to attend his funeral. While McCain and his family have not yet denied nor confirmed the reports of the statement, people are not surprised of this alleged decision.

McCain has openly never been a fan of Donald Trump or his administrative policies. In 2015, Trump mocked McCain’s heroic military service saying that, “[John McCain] is a war hero because he was captured” and that Trump liked “people that weren’t captured.” In September of 2017, Trump mocked McCain after he voted not to appeal Trump’s healthcare plan. McCain’s family has also very outspokenly condemned Trump and his comments about John. After making a comment about McCain’s vote about healthcare at the CPAC, Meghan McCain said, “I think the President fails to understand this, but more importantly, in my own — from my own feeling, we need more compassion, we need more empathy, we need more togetherness in terms of working together. We don’t need more bullying and I’m tired of it,” she said.

Charlotte Yang (11) said, “At the end of the day, it’s McCain’s choice if he wants Trump at his funeral or not. I can see why he doesn’t want him there.” Tyra Hawthorne (11) says, “A funeral is meant to honor someone and I don’t think Trump would want to do that for McCain.” John McCain is currently staying in Arizona instead of Washington D.C. to receive private treatment. The senator said in an audio excerpt this week of his forthcoming memoir, “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here,” according to a clip aired by NPR. Funeral plans have been made for McCain.
