"Senator McCain has returned to Arizona and will undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic".

"He is grateful for the excellent care he continues to receive, and appreciates the outpouring of support from people all over the country. He looks forward to returning to Washington in January", McCain's office announced.

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

McCain's absence is not expected to derail Republican efforts to pass the bill, despite a razor-thin majority in the Senate.

The Republican senator from Arizona, who was admitted to the Walter Reed Medical Center on Wednesday, was returning home from Washington, D.C., on Sunday, CBS News reported.

McCain, an 81-year-old former prisoner of war and 2008 Republican presidential nominee was diagnosed in July with a brain tumor known as a glioblastoma, after doctors found a blood clot over his left eye during a routine checkup. He has been undergoing treatment since.

President Trump told reporters on December 17 that Sen.

Macierewicz said in a radio interview that Putin "should have the courage to take responsibility for what has happened". Mr Trump has repeatedly said all options remain on the table.

"An evaluation of his underlying cancer shows he is responding positively to ongoing treatment", Gilbert said. "They've headed back, but I understand he'll come if we ever needed his vote - which hopefully we won't", Trump told reporters.

In a statement, Dr. Mark Gilbert, Chief of Neuro-Oncology at the National Institutes of Health, said that McCain responded well to treatment at Walter Reed for a viral infection.

Trump says: "He's going through a very tough time, there's no question about it". 'My father is doing well and we are all looking forward to spending Christmas together in Arizona, ' she continued. But GOP leaders are likely to have enough Republicans to pass the measure. The bill appeared to have unanimous support from the Republican Senate conference, with all 52 senators signaling they would vote yes.

After his summer surgery, McCain rebounded quickly, returning to Washington and entering the Senate on July 25 to a standing ovation from his colleagues.

The Senate already passed the tax bill once, but must do so again now that it has been joined with the House's version.

More recently, McCain tore the Achilles tendon on his right foot, which forced him to wear a walking brace and then use a wheelchair in order to get around the U.S. Capitol.
