"That is the cause that binds us and is so much more powerful and worthy than the small differences that divide us,"McCain said".

Eight years later, here was a man who openly professed his love of money, who had avoided military service because of a foot problem he later said had healed itself, a man who bragged about greasing the wheels for his NY real estate empire by donating to both Democrats and Republicans, a man who, in short, unapologetically flouted the long-established traditions of American politics and the presidency.

"Over a lifetime of selfless service, John came to embody the very pinnacle of American virtue", Hatch, said shortly after the news of McCain's death became public Saturday afternoon.

Trump says on Twitter, "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

John McCain, a titan in the U.S. Senate, was a consistent conservative, though unafraid to buck Republican Party leadership on issues ranging from campaign finance reform to the GOP-led effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

McCain had an unsuccessful run for president as a self-styled maverick Republican in 2008 but lost to Democrat Barack Obama, who went on to become the first black United States president.

"A number of times they were strong in their tactics trying to get me to possibly embarrass my father and our country", McCain said. McCain Jr., center, served as the Navy's commander in chief in Europe. "We join with millions of Americans in mourning his loss, and extend our deepest condolences to Senator McCain's wife, Cindy, and his entire family".
