President Trump lowered the American flags at the White House Tuesday morning in honor of the four journalists and one staffer killed by a gunman at The Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland last week. The mayor of Annapolis had made a personal appeal to the White House over the weekend, which was rejected Monday, according to a spokesperson for Mayor Gavin Buckley.
White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said the decision was made on Monday night "as soon as the President heard about the request from the mayor".
As The Capital Gazette reports, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders called Buckley Tuesday morning to inform him of Trump's decision.
After recent mass shootings at high schools in Texas and Florida, Trump ordered USA flags across the country lowered to half-staff to honor the victims. "Americans across the country are united in calling upon God to be with the victims and bring aid and comfort to their families and friends". "It's just as important as any other tragedy", said Buckley.
The Republican governor's order says the action was in "accordance" with an order issued by President Donald Trump.
"At this point in time, it would start to polarize people and I don't want to make people angry."
Shortly after the order was released Tuesday, Buckley told the Sun that the reversal was "the least respect we could give the journalists".
In fact, Buckley's request may not have been denied so much as delayed.
"It's a frightful situation, but I think it's the least respect we could give the journalists", Buckley said. Jarrod W. Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in their killings.
