Cancer-stricken US Senator McCain says prognosis 'very good'

John McCain

But McCain noted that while there were some positive signs following a recent round of chemotherapy, he was fighting against a "very virulent form of cancer". All the results so far are excellent. And there's two ways of looking at these things, and one of them is to celebrate.

But with cancer, the feisty legislator in the twilight of his career acknowledged he was in one of the fights of his life.

In his appearance Sunday, McCain expounded on a message he has delivered loudly since his diagnosis: the Senate should produce legislation through open, bipartisan debate and Republicans have not used the massive power granted to them by the people effectively enough. I think it was a playwright, I'll think of his name in a minute. The senator made the case that the deal is "basically devastating to national defense", though the United States remains totally unchallenged as owner of the largest and most expensive military in the world.

McCain also took questions about what happened in Congress last week, with President Trump going over the heads of GOP leadership to cut a budget and debt ceiling deal with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Nadal Eyes Third US Open against Anderson
He's by no means a rookie to the sport of tennis, however, and the 31-year-old player has a tremendous amount of experience. The last South African to win a major was Johan Kriek, who took the 1981 Australian Open title.

Mr. McCain urged to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals campaign to be done in a comprehensive immigration package that will provide the permanent protections for young immigrants.

Tapper asked McCain how he wants to be remembered, with the caveat that he hopes he doesn't have to run the clip "for another 50 years".

"He served his country and not always right", McCain responded. Made a lot of errors, but served his country. "Now, are we going to go to the young men or women serving in Afghanistan or Iraq today and say, 'By the way, you're a dreamer, get back to fill in the blank.' We're not going to do that to these young men and women who are serving in uniform", he added.
