Donald Trump failed to pay tribute to John McCain during his public address on Friday after the former prisoner of war announced he was stopping treatment for his aggressive brain cancer.
Many leading Republicans, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, offered their prayers and support to McCain after his family made the sad announcement on Friday. But the president, who has publicly clashed with McCain since the beginning of his 2016 presidential campaign, has been notably silent.
On Friday, during his speech at a fundraising dinner for the Ohio Republican Party in Columbus, Trump spoke about illegal immigration, attacked Democrats and ESPN, and even found time to give shout-outs to Kim and Kanye West.
But he said nothing about the 35-year veteran of Congress who he has frequently attacked over recent years.
