John McCain tells close friends he doesn’t want Trump at his funeral, report says

John McCain, who has been fighting brain cancer for almost a year, told his inner circle that he does not want President Donald Trump to attend his funeral and would prefer Vice President Mike Pence to be present instead, according to a media report.

The Arizona Republican, 81, is recovering from surgery related to an intestinal infection and has been undergoing treatment for a rare, aggressive type of brain cancer called glioblastoma.

The New York Times reports that McCain’s close friends have notified the White House of his current plan, in which Pence will attend the senator’s funeral, but not Trump.
