McCain, who died Saturday at age 81, will be buried Sunday at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, after his body lies in state in the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix, and the Capitol Rotunda in DC.
After McCain's death, Trump tweeted, "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

He did, however, ask that Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush deliver eulogies. Our hearts and prayers are with you!"-but it's the Instagram version of that sentiment that's getting all the attention".
