Hundreds of lawmakers, public officials and dignitaries attended McCain's funeral service Saturday morning at the Washington National Cathedral, where former Presidents George W. Bush and Obama delivered eulogies.

Earlier in the morning, McCain's daughter Meghan McCain took several swipes at Trump during her speech at the service, condemning "cheap rhetoric" and declaring that "the America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great."
