The President travels to the Chinese capital a day after meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May in Nairobi and shortly after he returned from a historic meeting with US President Donald Trump in Washington DC.

Asked if he missed an opportunity to unite the country and made a mistake, Trump disagreed.

Downs says. "So the Right to Try is an example, is something that a lot of Democrats will say 'Well, I'm good with that.' They may not be good with the wall".

Trump also raised the issue in a speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, Friday evening, saying, "These are very dishonorable people".

The funeral services for Senator John McCain (R-Ariz) were politically charged from start to finish.

Speaking at a rally in IN on August 30, Trump said people are angry over issues such as the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether there was collusion between Russian Federation and his 2016 election campaign.

Pence said he didn't always agree with McCain, but said McCain's support for limited government, tax reform and the military "surely left our nation more prosperous and more secure".

McCain lost the 2008 presidential election to Obama, an outcome the senator called a "privilege" in a letter to the country released after his death.

He added: "Maybe I'll give you that answer some day later".

Mr McCain's office said there will be a livestream of all the events, and Saturday's memorial will also be available at the same link as today's service.

"We will forever remember that John McCain served his country and John McCain served his country honorably".

"Look at what she's getting away with it", Trump said.

"We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe", McCain wrote in his farewell letter to the nation, read posthumously by a longtime aide. The flag atop the White House roof was lowered again at 3:30 p.m. Monday, and the president issued a statement honoring McCain.

"I thought that was disrespectful of President Trump to be tweeting during the memorial service", Dr. Brinkley replied.
