Funeral ceremonies for John McCain:   He made us better president

Personalities from politics and society have honored late U.S. Senator John McCain in Washington. Former US presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush also took part in funeral ceremonies. "He has made us better presidents, just as he has made Senate better, just as he has made this country better," Obama said.

McCain died a week ago at age of 81 years in Arizona at a brain tumor. The Republican was strongest intra-partisan opponent of President Donald Trump. Obama said at funeral, McCain understood "that some principles go beyond politics, that some values go beyond parties". That is why he defended a free and independent press as vital for a good debate.

Obama's predecessor Bush said about McCain: "He was honorable, always recognizing that his opponents were still patriots and people." The U.S. senator has despised abuse of power, Bush said.
