Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, sent a letter apologizing to Arizona Sen. John McCain Tuesday after telling reporters McCain’s reported decision not to have President Trump attend his funeral is “ridiculous.”

“I’ve spoken out of turn,” Hatch told reporters Tuesday, according to The Hill. “I shouldn’t have said what I said.”

Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock confirmed to USA TODAY that “Senator Hatch sent a note directly to Senator McCain” but he said Hatch “won’t be sharing it publicly.”
