Senator John McCain's daughter paid tribute to her father on Saturday with a broadside at President Donald Trump, lambasting the USA leader without naming him for using "cheap rhetoric" against a man celebrated as a war hero and statesman.
McCain's family had made clear that Mr Trump was not welcome at memorial services in Arizona and Washington, or at tomorrow's private burial service at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
He and Trump, both Republicans, had feuded publicly for more than two years.
McCain "never hesitated to tell me when he thought I was screwing up, which by his calculation was about once a day", the Democratic former president said, drawing some laughter from the crowd. "To the face of those in authority, John would insist, we are better than this".
"The America of John McCain", she said, "is generous and welcoming and bold", further describing the country "confident, resourceful, and secure".

The almost three-hour service at the Washington National Cathedral was a remarkable show of defiance against a president McCain openly defied in life as the antithesis of the American spirit of service to something greater than any individual.
Obama, along with former President George W. Bush, was personally asked by McCain to deliver a eulogy at his funeral.
