The USS John S. McCain was originally named for the late senator's grandfather, naval aviator and World War II Pacific commander Adm. John S. McCain Sr., and his father, former Pacific Command chief Adm. John S. McCain Jr.

Nobody gets under President Donald Trump's skin like the late Sen.

The official then issued a third instruction: "USS John McCain needs to be out of sight", according to the email, which was obtained by the Journal and whose existence was confirmed to The Associated Press. "I would not have done that", Trump told reporters as he was leaving the White House for Colorado, where he is scheduled to address an Air Force Academy graduation ceremony.

She said: "He will always be deeply threatened by the greatness of my dad's incredible life. nine months since he passed, Trump won't let him RIP".

The Wall Street Journal first reported Wednesday that a tarp was placed over the warship's name before Trump's arrival and that sailors were instructed to remove any coverings from the ship that included its name.

Even after Senator McCain's death, the president has continued to make his dislike of the senator known: "I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be", Mr Trump said in March.

The White House requested a Navy ship bearing the name of US President Donald Trump's late rival senator John McCain be kept "out of sight" during a recent presidential trip to Japan, US media reported Wednesday.

The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the claims, cited an email between U.S. military officials which said that the ship "needs to be out of sight".

"He's not a war hero", Trump said in 2015, reiterating a stance he had previously taken on 60 Minutes in 1999.

Army Lt. Col. Joseph Buccino, a spokesman for Shanahan, said the defense secretary "was not aware of the directive to move the USS John S. McCain, nor was he aware of the concern precipitating the directive". "It makes my grief unbearable". However, the USA official said sailors on the ship were given the day off because of Memorial Day.

Brian Kilmeade brought the story up, noting to his guest that "we know the two men had a rivalry that has lasted beyond John McCain's death, but what can you tell us about this, Mercedes?"

News agencies cited officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, as saying that the request to keep the ship out of sight had been made, but that the directive had been scrapped by senior Navy officials.

"The View" co-host and daughter of the late Sen. "So I have to stand up for him", Ms. McCain wrote.

The solution? The ship was draped with tarps and its sailors, who usually wear regalia with the vessel's name, were given the day off.

The paper also said sailors assigned to the ship were given the day off during Mr Trump's visit to the nearby USS Wasp in Yokosuka where he spoke to troops at a Memorial Day event.
