White House Re-Lowers Flag To Half Staff To Honor McCain After Backlash

1

The White House on Monday afternoon re-lowered its flags to half staff after drawing significant backlash for returning them to full staff less than 48 hours after the death of Sen. John McCain.

Multiple reporters noted on social media that the flags were flying at half staff once again as of roughly 3:45 p.m. President Trump issued a proclamation a short time later ordering flags at government buildings remain at half staff to honor McCain.

Republicans and Democrats condemned the White House on Monday after the flags were raised back to full staff early Monday.
