John McCain discontinues brain cancer treatment, family says

McCain, however, has consistently attracted the ire of President Donald Trump, who in 2015, as a candidate, said McCain was considered a war hero only “because he was captured” during the Vietnam War and that Trump preferred military figures who avoided being taken prisoner by the enemy.

Trump has also repeatedly criticized McCain for his “no” vote that helped doom a key Obamacare repeal bill in the Senate.

In addition, in May a top White House communications aide, Kelly Sadler, made fun of McCain’s brain cancer diagnosis, saying, “He’s dying anyway.”

And last month, during the signing of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, Trump chose not to mention McCain’s name at all, even omitted McCain’s name when citing the title of the bill.
