Barack Obama Reacts to the Death of John McCain with Heartfelt Tribute

Former President Barack Obama who ran against Sen. John Mc Cain in the 2008 presidential election paid tribute to the senato

The procession will then head to Washington, where McCain will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda on Friday with a formal ceremony and time for the public to pay respects.

Writing on Twitter, President Trump - who once criticised the senator for being taken prisoner during the Vietnam War - offered his "deepest sympathies and respect" to McCain's family. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted in English that Mr McCain "was a true American hero".

Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for governor and a former OH attorney general, said on Twitter, "Saddened to hear of the passing of John McCain - a hero who sacrificed more for our country than many of us ever could imagine".

The statement of Obama read they shared a fidelity to something higher even though there were differences in views.

John Kasich said in a statement, "Karen and I join the nation, and so many around the world, in mourning the death of Senator John McCain, an iconic American hero, patriot, and statesman without compare". "He never chose a path because it was easy; he chose a path because he believed it was right".

Former president George W Bush, who defeated Mr McCain for the 2000 Republican presidential nomination, called Mr McCain a "man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order" and a "friend whom I'll deeply miss".

"Few sacrificed more for, or contributed more to, the welfare of his fellow citizens - and indeed freedom-loving peoples around the world".

Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described McCain as a skilled politician who "frequently put partisanship aside to do what he thought was best for the country".

"I will always treasure the constant friendship he showed to the people of Israel and to me personally".

"It's an understatement to say the Senate will not be the same without our friend John", said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who broke the news to a room of gasps at the Republican Party's annual Lincoln dinner in Kentucky.

Speaking on NBC's Meet the Press, Flake said that he hopes to be the first Republican co-sponsor.

Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled. "He had his office there during his entire time".

McCain spent more than three decades in the Senate, looming large in debates over war and peace and the moral direction of the nation. A pilot, he was shot down over Vietnam and held as a prisoner of war for more than five years.

The sad if not unexpected death of John McCain, the U.S. senator, is a reminder that good, decent, thoughtful people in political life are rare.

In Phoenix, a succession of ordinary Arizonans left flags or flowers at McCain's office or a local mortuary to honour the man who represented them in Congress for 35 years.
