"Did it surprise you?"

"We thank God for giving this country John McCain", McConnell said.

McCain "served his country honorably", Pence said, adding that President Donald Trump "respected his service to the country".

Trump gets along well with French President Emmanuel Macron, who has sometimes been jokingly referred to as the "Trump whisperer" because he has managed to form a unique bond with the American president. At McCain's request, two former presidents - Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush - will speak.

Washington said it wanted UNRWA to reform and believed other countries should increase the amounts they contributed to the agency.

But memos authored by Republicans and Democrats and declassified this year show the probe was triggered by information the USA government earlier received about the Russian contacts of then-Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos. "We never doubted that we were on the same team". "John McCain was not defined by prison, by the Navy, by the Senate, by the Republican Party or by any single one of the deeds in his absolutely extraordinary life".
