According to a report by NBC News, Barack Obama has been asked to deliver a eulogy at John McCain’s funeral. McCain has an aggressive form of brain cancer and is not expected to live much longer.

This news follows earlier reports that Vice President Pence would be attending, but not Trump. McCain and Trump have a very rocky relationship.

Friends of McCain have told NBC that McCain doesn’t want Trump at his funeral.

In the past, Trump has made comments about McCain such as:  “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”

Last year, Trump also blasted McCain for his “no” vote on repealing part of Obamacare. Trump mocked McCain for not holding his arm up fully while giving the thumbs down. McCain couldn’t do so because of injuries while being a prisoner of war.



The New York Times reports that the funeral will take place at the Washington National Cathedral.

In a recent interview with NPR, McCain has told listeners that he doesn’t “know how much longer I’ll be here.” He has been spending a lot of time with close family by his side.
