McCain's was the deciding vote against the GOP’s push to overhaul former President Obama's signature health-care plan.

McCain, who famously broke with his party with his vote, died last month at the age of 81 after being diagnosed an aggressive form of brain cancer. 

McCain and Trump traded harsh rhetoric since then-candidate Trump's time on the campaign trail.

Trump said McCain, who was tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam and who refused early release, was not a war hero because he was captured.

McCain frequently criticized the Trump administration’s policies and the president’s rhetoric. 

Trump took aim at McCain for his vote in multiple campaign rallies while the senator was receiving treatment for cancer at his home in Arizona.

Trump was not invited to McCain's funeral.
