"Its time to move beyond politics and toward building a stronger america. I know Joe will unify the country toward a better future," Cindy McCain tweeted Saturday, calling Biden a "dear friend." 

"Only a very personal note - I am relieved and look forward to having a president who respects POW’s who have been captured...," Meghan McCain tweeted in a statement of her own. 


Meghan McCain added: "(*I had to say it)" 


Trump criticized the veteran lawmaker both before and after his death for his rejection of a Republican-led repeal on the Affordable Care Act, among other issues. 

One more than one occasion, Trump attacked McCain's character, suggesting he was not, in fact, a war hero. McCain was captured and tortured while serving in the U.S. military in Vietnam.  

The McCains were Trump critics and appeared in several advertisements for Biden's campaign, endorsing the Democrat and imploring voters to reject Trump and his policies. 

“I know John would want what is best for our country," Cindy McCain said earlier this year What is best for our country is not our party. What’s best for our country is Joe Biden.”

"I hardly know Cindy McCain other than having put her on a Committee at her husband’s request," Trump tweeted in late September.

McCain's home state of Arizona, usually a Republican stronghold, has been called for Biden by the Associated Press, though networks have held off on calling the state. 
Biden was projected to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election by the AP and a number of broadcast network late Saturday morning and will address the nation on Saturday night. 

Trump has said he will not concede the election and is alleging, without evidence, widespread voter fraud tipping the election for Biden.
