President Trump commemorated John McCain for his life of service to the country — but it took him the working day to get there. After discounting questions about the late senator and taking flack for causing the flags at the White House after briefly lowering them after McCain died, Trump put out a statement expressing his “respect” for the former POW and campaign hero. Trump afterwards said he appreciated “everything that Sen. McCain has done for our country.” And he ordered flags lowered again. Pressure from Trump’s aides and disapproval from the American Legion seemed to push the President to say more about McCain.
