President Donald Trump is ordering all American and state flags lowered to half-staff immediately at public office buildings in honor of the victims of the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
Glowering in public and near-silent for two days, President Donald Trump relented under pressure by tersely recognizing Sen. John McCain’s “service to our country” and re-lowering the White House flag.
Two days after Sen. John McCain's death, President Donald Trump says he respects the senator's "service to our country" and has signed a proclamation to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff until his burial.
Gov. Matt Bevin has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018, in honor of a Kentucky serviceman who was killed in action during the Korean War but whose remains were only recently identified.
