.@SenJohnMcCain lived a life of service to his country, from his heroism in the Navy to 35 years in Congress. He was a tough politician, a trusted colleague, and there will simply never be another like him. My thoughts and prayers are with Cindy and his entire family.

John McCain was a great statesman, who embodied the idea of service over self. It was an honour to call him a friend of the UK. My deepest sympathies go to his family, and the American people.

John McCain believed that every citizen has a responsibility to make something of the freedoms given by our Constitution, and from his heroic service in the Navy to his 35 years in Congress, he lived by his creed every day. https://t.co/946T7PnG53

בצער רב קיבלתי את הבשורה על מותו של ג'ון מקיין, פטריוט אמריקני גדול וידיד אמת של ישראל. תמיד אוקיר בלבי את הידידות האיתנה שלו כלפי עם ישראל וכלפיי באופן אישי. תמיכתו העקבית בישראל נבעה מאמונתו בערכי הדמוקרטיה והחופש. מדינת ישראל מצדיעה לג'ון מקיין pic.twitter.com/VijCckW71n

Senator John McCain was a courageous war hero, dedicated public servant, and central figure in America’s political culture. Upon learning of his death, I remembered something: Sen. McCain had a keen sense of humor—he seemed eager to laugh, even at himself. May He Rest In Peace.

Unshakeable courage & unparalleled patriotism. A public servant in the truest sense. Our country mourns the loss of Senator McCain, an American patriot who made Arizona and the entire U.S. a stronger & safer place. pic.twitter.com/xsd4Gnv1Or
