“He’s not a war hero,” Trump said on the campaign trail. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

Meghan McCain has long called on Trump to apologize for the remarks and took a shot at him when she eulogized her father at his Washington, D.C., funeral service.

She told the crowd, which included the president's daughter Ivanka TrumpIvana (Ivanka) Marie TrumpTrump, Biden vie for Minnesota Trump luxury properties have charged US government .1M since inauguration: report Ivana Trump: Ivanka could 'definitely' be first female president MORE, that they were gathered to mourn the passing of “American greatness.”

"The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege," she added.

Trump has continued to criticize the late senator since his death, including in comments during an official White House event last month.

The president complained that he was not given a “thank you” for McCain’s funeral.

He has also chastised John McCain over his level of support of veterans. 

"McCain didn’t get the job done for our great vets and the [Department of Veterans Affairs] VA," Trump said at an Ohio rally. "That’s why when I had my dispute with him I had such incredible support from the vets and on the military."
