President Donald Trump has arrived at his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, VA, according to reporting by NBC News.
In addition to this being Trump’s 195th day at a Trump property as president and his 152nd day at a Trump golf club since taking the oath of office, Trump did it right as former President Obama was speaking at McCain’s memorial service at the National Cathedral.
Obama’s eulogy of McCain preceded right after former President George W. Bush’s and his daughter, Meghan McCain, who shook the country with her poignant words of her father.
Here are some of memorable shots of Obama’s speech:
“He had an ability to see past differences in search for common ground. [And] for all of our differences. For all of the times we sparked. I never tried to hide … the longstanding admiration I had for him,” former President Barack Obama said of John McCain. pic.twitter.com/4JLecDgxVz

When Obama started talking about the types of disagreements he had with McCain, he said “when everything was all said and done, we never doubted we were on the same team.”
Obama opened up about how even though they used to be political opponents back in 2008, where Obama defeated McCain in the presidential election, Obama still invited McCain to the White House to join him in the Oval Office to talk about their differences.
Imagine President Trump doing that now. It’s hard to.
President Obama reflects on Oval Office meetings with McCain during his presidency:
“Our disagreements didn’t go away during these private conversations. Those were real, and they were often deep… When all was said and done, we never doubted we were on the same team.” pic.twitter.com/M7iSO43mh5

Preisdent Obama is truly a class act when remembering his moments with John McCain:
“President Bush and I are among the fortunate few who competed against John at the highest levels of politics. He made us better presidents.”
