The White House flag is no longer at half-staff in honor of Sen. John McCain, who died Saturday.
An ABC News camera captured the flag as officials returned it to full-staff around midnight, ABC News senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega told “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos Monday.
The flag-lowering that lasted less than 48 hours breaks from precedent that it is lowered until burial.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump nixed his aides’ recommendation to issue a statement praising the late Arizona senator, The Washington Post reported Sunday.
But Trump has released a tweet of condolence.
My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 26, 2018
The McCain family had reportedly asked the president not to attend McCain’s funeral even before he died this weekend at age 81.
Two former presidents -- Barack Obama and George W. Bush -- will deliver eulogies Saturday. Vice President Mike Pence has also been invited to the funeral.
