He jokes that the two are like brothers raised by different fathers due to their opposite points of view - Biden is a Democrat, and McCain is a Republican.

Biden and John McCain served together in the US Senate from 1987 until Biden became vice president in 2009.

"Senator McCain is now receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy", the release said. The sweeping policy measure has been a major achievement of McCain's for years. John McCain's recent brain cancer diagnosis and the death of Biden's son Beau two and a half years ago.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) speaks at a press conference about the National Defense Authorization Act in Washington, U.S., October 25, 2017.

The statement says McCain looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible. McCain's vote scuttled the seven-year effort by the GOP to dismantle much of President Barack Obama's health care law. He suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, forcing him to wear a walking brace.

Joe Biden and Meghan McCain shared an emotional moment Wednesday, with the former vice president consoling the daughter of his friend and onetime political rival Sen.

Speaking through tears, Meghan asked Biden to bear with her, and explained that the parallels between his experience with Beau and hers with her father made his book too hard for her to read. I know if I picked up the phone tonight and called John McCain and said, "John, I'm at Second and Vine in Oshkosh, and I need your help".

McCain was visibly emotional at this point, and Biden switched seats to sit next to her. Your strength, hope, and fortitude are an inspiration to me and so many others daily.
