The absence of a formal communique from the White House has raised eyebrows and was all the more conspicuous after Vice President Mike Pence along with most of the cabinet, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and all the living former presidents had issued their own statements over the weekend.

After Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of MA died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for five days.

Sen. John McCainJohn Sidney McCainArizona governor faces pressure over McCain replacement O'Rourke holds moment of silence after McCain's death Trump nixed White House statement praising McCain: report MORE (R-Ariz.), who died on Saturday, will be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., on Sunday, Sept. 2, following a week of memorial services commemorating his life.

The White House had lowered its flag to half staff on Sunday, but shortly after midnight, it was back at full stalf, in a clear break with precedent - which dictates that it be lowered until burial - and the US flag code.

The U.S. flag code calls for flags to be lowered in the event of the death of a member of Congress "on the day of death and the following day".

And Mr Trump himself issued flag flying proclamations following mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland, Florida.

Flags will remain lowered until sunset on the day of internment.

While traditions may vary in different countries, the customs and religious practices on the day remains the same. It is here that Muslims believe the devil tried to talk the Prophet Ibrahim out of submitting to God's will.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Upon notice of McCain's death, Trump tweeted, "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

He will later lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, with another service taking place in Washington on Saturday, where former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are expected to speak. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!"

In 2015, in the opening months of his presidential campaign, Trump mocked McCain's service in the Vietnam war and time as a POW.

McCain died on Saturday of brain cancer.at the age of 81.

It will conclude almost a week of events honouring the man, whose body will lie in state on Wednesday in the Arizona State Capitol and on Friday in the Capitol Rotunda, Washington DC, with a formal ceremony and time for the public to pay respects.
