"Well, he's the president of the United States and he's a very good man". But it's up to [McCain].

However, McCain's decision to disinvite Trump had also prompted some to point out that not everyone at the White House will be sorry about Trump's absence, pointing out the enjoyable time First Lady Melania Trump and former President Barack Obama had at Barbara Bush's send-off.

Hatch added that he does not expect McCain to return to the Senate. "I hope he can". While the younger McCain flew home over the weekend, news broke that the senator was beginning to make funeral arrangements.
