Meanwhile, John McCain's family has released the late senator's final letter to the American people.

Republican leaders rejected a rush to name a building after Sen.

Sen. Chris Coons, a Delaware Democrat who frequently traveled with McCain on overseas trips, said his office is "on the first floor of the Russell Senate Office Building, but I hope that very soon, I'll be working in the McCain Senate Office Building". That led Washington Post writer Ashley Parker to refer to Trump as "president non grata" and one of her interview subjects for her newly published piece to speculate on why McCain's refusal to invite Trump to his funeral might be getting on his nerves.

Democrats as well as Republicans were effusive in their praise of McCain as they returned to Congress on Monday evening, celebrating his storied military career and 31 years representing Arizona in the US Senate.

"You know Richard Russell was ... from the South, and I'm sure not flawless like George Washington and everybody else in his days, but he was a well-respected senator", said Republican Sen.

He added: "Don't look to me to replace this man. Look to me to remember what he was all about and try to follow in his footsteps".

Russell served in the Senate from 1933 until his death and was known as a "senator's senator" due to his mastery of Senate rules. The idea is something "we have to think about", he added.
