Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama will deliver remarks honouring their friend and former White House challenger, at a memorial service in Washington's National Cathedral that McCain planned himself in recent months as he battled brain cancer.

More than 116,000 Americans and almost 1.4 million French troops died in World War I.

Ireland's foreign affairs minister Simon Coveney wrote on Twitter that the president is "always welcome in Ireland" and maintaining their shared ties is a "top priority".

"To John, American values had universal applicability", Kissinger said.

A volunteer member of the advance team for President Donald Trump has blocked a photojournalist's camera as he tried to take a photo of a protester during a campaign rally in Indiana. And the absence of Trump, whose bitter feud with McCain has wrangled United States politics during that time, will serve as a final rebuke of the president, highlighting the clash between a Republican elder statesman and the current president from his own party. Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter, and her husband, presidential adviser Jared Kushner, were surprise guests.
