It was unclear how McCain's absence might affect a crucial Senate vote on legislation to dismantle and replace Obamacare, with Republicans so divided that the absence of a single "yes" vote could doom the healthcare bill. McCain is back in Arizona recovering from surgery to remove a blood clot from above his eye.

Sen. John McCain underwent a surgical procedure on Friday to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, the Mayo Clinic said in a statement on behalf of the Arizona Republican.

Two Republican senators - Rand Paul (Ky.) and Susan Collins (Maine) - have said they do not intend to vote yes to proceed to the bill. "His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went "very well" and he is in good spirits", the Mayo Clinic said.

Washington plans to impose financial sanctions on the company if it finds sufficient evidence to prove the dealings. President Trump has repeatedly criticized China for not doing enough to control North Korea.

McCain said in a statement that he received "excellent treatment" from the Mayo team. Pathology reports are expected in the next several days.

McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, was resting comfortably at home in good condition after the Friday operation, according to doctors at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. In the meantime, Cheryl and I extend our best wishes to John, Cindy and the entire McCain family and pray for his speedy recovery.

McCain, 80, who is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, will be recovering in Arizona next week, his office said in a statement.
