WH Reverses On Lowering Flags For Maryland Victims

The Hill reports:

President Trump will order American flags lowered to half-staff to honor the victims of a deadly shooting last week at an Annapolis, Md., newspaper, CNN reported.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told CNN that the president made the decision to lower the flags after he received a request to do so from Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley.

Buckley said that Trump had initially declined his request to lower flags in honor of the victims and their families, the Capital Gazette reported Monday.
