Vice President Mike Pence was expected to attend, according to officials. Trump will fly to Charlotte for an event on retirement security at a fundraiser at one of his golf clubs Friday afternoon.

Military body bearers will receive McCain's body, which was flown overnight from Arizona, where his the Thursday memorial service was held in his home state.

"Character is destiny, John had character", Biden said at a funeral service for the 81-year-old McCain in Phoenix, the capital of Arizona, the southwestern state McCain represented in Congress for more than three decades.

Trump defended his handling of McCain's death in a Thursday interview with Bloomberg.

Trump and McCain never patched things up.

In 2015, not long after Trump kicked off his presidential campaign, McCain condemned his hard-line rhetoric on illegal immigration, accusing Trump of "firing up the crazies".

McCain, who spent five and a half years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, was brutally beaten during his time in captivity. "And to me, he was a friend whom I'll deeply miss".

Former US Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a memorial service to celebrate the life of of US Sen. Trump ordered the flag back to half-staff later on Monday, after facing harsh criticism. John McCain, but it appears Google Maps beat them to it.

More broadly, Zelizer noted that many Republicans, including some in Arizona, had grown frustrated with McCain's moderate stances on some issues, reflecting the changing nature of the Republican Party that Trump has seized upon. "It's unforgiving. And it takes so much for those we love and for the families that love them, that in order to survive, we have to remember how they lived, not how they died".

McCain was involved in planning the events around his funeral.

During his speech, which came just before former Vice President Joe Biden, Fitzgerald offered some lighthearted comparisons between he and McCain.

"You could come to a different conclusion, but where he'd part company with you, [was] if you lacked the basic values, the decency, respect. I have had experiences, adventures and friendships enough for ten satisfying lives, and I am so thankful", McCain wrote.

A former vice president, an National Football League star and other friends remembered Sen.
