Sanders said she spoke to Buckley Monday night to inform him of the President's decision, adding that she was "not sure about the process" which led to Buckley's claim that his request was initially denied.

In an interview earlier Monday with The Capital newspaper, Buckley said he was disappointed to hear that his request would not be honoured. But Trump issued a proclamation Tuesday morning honoring the victims of the Capital Gazette shooting and ordered the flags lowered.

"Americans across the country are united in calling upon God to be with the victims and to bring aid and comfort to their families and friends". It was an attack on freedom of speech.

According to the U.S. Flag Code, the national flag may be ordered lowered only by the president or the governor of a state - though the governor may only do so if the deaths being commemorated directly affected that state.

"At this point in time, it would start to polarize people and I don't want to make people angry."

Before receiving a call from Sanders, Buckley said his understanding was that the request had been denied.

Trump Thinks Democrats 'Never Win Another Election' With Open Borders
Kamala Harris (D-CA) said , "We need to probably think about starting from scratch". But when Donald Trump was elected, he sent ICE a clear message: The gloves are off.

Jarrod W Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder over the killings, which police described as a targeted attack.

"I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities overseas, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations", Trump said. Buckley told the Gazette.

Trump repeatedly has called journalists the "enemy of the people".
