Barack Obama said:
“We are all in his debt. John McCain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds and competed at the highest level of politics.
“But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher — the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched and sacrificed.”
Former US Vice President Al Gore, who served under Democrat Bill Clinton for 8 years said:
“I always admired and respected John from the opposite side of the aisle, because he thrived under pressure, and would work to find common ground, no matter how hard.”
President Donald Trump, who once mocked McCain’s war record, said on Twitter he sent his “deepest sympathies and respect.”
