Trump also griped about approving those final arrangings. The president — who was not invited to the funeral and went golfing instead — authorized the military arrangings , such as the transport of McCain’s body, pallbearers, a band and a pony and caisson. However, different parts of the funeral were handled by other organizations. Congress, for example, approved McCain lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda.
Trump’s funeral remarks came amid days of renewed attacks on the late senator.
“I was never a fan of John McCain and never will be, ” Trump said on Tuesday.
On Sunday, he called McCain “last in his class” and accused him of sharing the Russian dossier.
