  • Senator John McCain a Republican from Arizona and chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee speaks to members of the media while sitting in a wheelchair after a hearing in Washington D.C. U.S. on Thursday Nov. 30 2017

CBS News reported that Senator John McCain will miss the Senate's vote on massive tax cuts this week, returning to Arizona instead to recuperate from cancer treatment.

Mr. McCain's office said in a statement on Sunday night that the senator, who had been hospitalized recently in the Washington area, would undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona and "looks forward to returning to Washington in January".

That's the word Sunday from Dr. Mark Gilbert, chief of Neuro-Oncology at the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute. A doctor says he is also "responding positively" to ongoing treatment for brain cancer.

McCain will miss the vote this week on the tax bill.

"They've headed back, but I understand he'll come if we ever needed his vote, which hopefully we won't", Mr. Trump said.
