Trump wasn’t invited to McCain’s funeral, Trump goes golfing during McCain’s funeral service

President Donald Trump went about his day like any other Saturday – tweets and time at his golf club in Virginia, as John McCain was honored at the National Cathedral.
Trump got into his motorcade and left the White House around 10:30 a.m., wearing a white short-sleeved shirt and white MAGA hat. At the same time, former president George W. Bush and Barack Obama along with many other notable Washington leaders attended memorial services for the late Arizona senator – to which Trump was not invited.
Trump arrived at Trump National Golf Club in Loudoun County, Virginia, amid a morning of tweets criticizing the Department of Justice and the FBI and threatening Canada.
“There is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal. If we don’t make a fair deal for the U.S. after decades of abuse, Canada will be out,” Trump tweeted earlier Saturday.
However, Trump’s tweets made no mention of McCain, whose family took jabs at the president and his campaign motto during the services.
“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great,” daughter Meghan McCain said.
“We gather here 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 while he suffered and served,” she said. “He was a great fire who burned bright. In the past few days my family and I have heard from so many of those Americans who stood in the warmth and light of his fire.”
Trump, who had an ongoing feud with McCain and his family, was not invited to any of the senator’s memorial services throughout the week. Vice President Mike Pence and Chief of Staff John Kelly, among others, attended the various services on behalf of the White House.
About a dozen protesters gathered on the road outside Trump’s golf club holding signs that read, “RIP McCain – a hero,” and “You, Trump, are no John McCain.” Some were flying yellow baby Trump balloons.
