A final attack John McCain. who is currently battling brain cancer is publishing a memoir later this month which will attack Trump and say that his life has been'quite a ride

Senator John McCain pleaded with Washington to "expose Putin's regime's corruption" after Vlad allegedly ordered cyber attacks in the USA ahead of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Instead, those close to the ailing Senator have reportedly indicated that he wants Vice President Mike Pence to attend and former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush to be eulogists. McCain was diagnosed 10 months ago; the median survival rate is 14 months. John McCain, who has been recovering from recent brain cancer treatment and surgery, according to reports. He has not been seen in public since leaving Washington last December.

'I wanted to let him know how much I love him and how much he mattes to me and how much I admire his integrity and his courage, ' Biden told the Times after his hours-long visit. "My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable".

McCain graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1958 and followed his father and grandfather-both four-star admirals-into the United States Navy. Larson graduated at top of their class; McCain was fifth from the bottom. The situation has become so grave that he and his family have begun planning funeral arrangements. Edward Kennedy, at age 77 in 2009, and former Vice President Joe Biden's son Beau at 46 in 2015.

Striking a tone similar to a point he repeatedly made on the Senate floor in Washington, McCain says, "whether we think each other right or wrong in our views on the issues of the day, we owe each other our respect".

Trump made the comments after he had called Meghan McCain to say he would not mock her ill father anymore.

By contrast, McCain's relationship with Trump has been marked with clashes and criticism. "He was a war hero because he was captured".

After McCain criticized Mr. Trump in October - after McCain's cancer diagnosis - Mr. Trump said "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back". In excerpts from his upcoming memoir, McCain offers a sharp rebuke of the president, questioning his convictions as a leader and hitting him for his attacks on refugees and the press.

Biden has been contemplating a 2020 presidential bid, and recently said he would make a decision by the end of 2018.
