The retiring senator has repeatedly criticized Trump in the past year, including taking to the Senate floor in January to denounce the president's attacks on the mainstream news media.

Twenty-four senators, including Flake, attended the funeral service Saturday for McCain in Washington, D.C., according to Roll Call, while six former senators also attended.

McCain, who served in the Senate since 1987, was known for bucking party and operating as a "maverick" senator who frequently crossed party lines to find bipartisan consensus.

His funeral arrangements underscored his tense relationship with Trump, who questioned his status as a war hero during the 2016 presidential race and blasted his vote last year against a scaled-down ObamaCare repeal bill.

Trump was not invited to attend McCain's funeral service, instead spending several hours on Saturday at at his golf course in Virginia.
