John McCain, who returned to the Senate last week after treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer, says his prognosis is good, but noted "the challenges are very significant". He said, 'I always knew that no one could live forever, but I thought there might be one exception.' So you've got to have joy.

Though he faced criticism from some on the left for not acting on his tough rhetoric about President Donald Trump's policies, McCain has made returning to regular order a priority in the senate, casting the deciding vote against senate Republicans' repeal of the Affordable Care Act in July because it was not crafted with Democratic input.

"Everything is fine", he told Jake Tapper on CNN's.

DACA, which was created by executive order, needed to be guaranteed through legislation and should include a path to citizenship, but those measures should be passed as part of a broad, comprehensive immigration reform bill, McCain said. We have new technologies that I won't bother you with the details of that make chances better.

McCain said on Sunday he hoped that people would remember him as someone, who had served his country.


"I'm very happy with my life", McCain said. I'm very happy with what I have been able to do.

Tapper told McCain that he hoped "this is not our last interview". And there's two ways of looking at these things. "I am able to celebrate a wonderful life and I will be grateful for additional time that I have".

"A lot of people want it to be the last", McCain quipped.

In speaking with CNN, " McCain said he thinks Congress should codify Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and create a path for citizenship for "Dreamers". Made a lot of errors. "And I hope we can add - honorably".
