Senator John McCain was recently diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, sparking love and prayers to flow from all parts of the nation and well-wishes from various political leaders. Previously, the Republican senator made a short return for work on the health care reform.
However, McCain still had to take a four-week recess for chemotherapy and radiation treatments in Phoenix, Arizona. Following his treatment, McCain’s office released a statement to the public.
The announcement revealed that McCain will return to the U.S. Senate the week of Labor Day 2017. Although the statement does not specify his exact health condition after chemo, he is expected to be in good health since he is jumping back into politics.
The statement reads, "Senator McCain will return to the U.S. Senate next week as Congress begins a new legislative session and looks forward to continuing his work for the people of Arizona and the nation."
McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain also commented on the big news. She stated, “This country needs my father now more than ever.”
According to ABC News, McCain is expected to lead a debate on a defense policy bill. In relation to politics, many Trump supporters have been upset with McCain for constantly disagreeing with Trump, especially his unexpected vote against the health care reform.
Even more recently, McCain publicly condemned President Trump for his decision to pardon the conviction of former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. McCain referred to Trump’s actions as being “disrespectful of the law.”
