Trump on Tuesday ordered US flags be flown at half-staff on federal property in honor of the journalists killed June 28 in Annapolis, Maryland. The request comes after Annapolis mayor Gavin Buckley claimed that Trump had denied his request to have flags lowered.
Susan O'Brien, the mayoral spokeswoman in Annapolis, had confirmed in a statement that the mayor requested the flags be lowered, adding: "The Mayor is extremely disappointed by the denial from the White House of his request to fly the United States flag at half staff in honor of the slain journalists from The Capital Gazette".
Annapolis mayor says Trump declined request to lower flags to half-staff to honour five killed in Thursday's shooting. He said he had considered lowering the flags himself, but the Democratic congressman and his wife talked him out of it, saying protocol should be followed. "Is there a cutoff for tragedy?" he asked. "It's just as important as any other tragedy". Sanders claims that she called Buckley on Monday night to confirm that he had made the request and to tell him that the White House would respond later, according to CBS News. Jarrod W. Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in their killings.
When asked Tuesday morning if the president is committed to stop calling journalists the "enemy of the people", Sanders said that Mr. Trump has a "great deal of respect for the press", but also called on the media to be responsible with their reporting.
