Trump orders US flags lowered in honor of Capital Gazette shooting victims

People take part in a candlelight vigil near the Capital Gazette the day after a gunman killed five people inside the newspaper’s building in Annapolis Md

President Trump has ordered USA flags to be lowered to half-staff as "a mark of solemn respect" for the four journalists and a newspaper sales representative killed last week at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Md.

In an about-face, President Donald Trump on Tuesday ordered American flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the five people gunned down last week inside a newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland.

The president quickly issued a proclamation ordering the flags lowered nationwide until sunset on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT).

She said that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke with Buckley both Monday night and Tuesday morning to alert him to the decision.

The Latest on the shootings targeting Maryland's Capital Gazette newspaper (all times local): Noon A prosecutor says the shooter who opened fire at a Maryland newspaper barricaded the exit door so employees couldn't escape.

On Friday, a judge ordered that Ramos, 38, remain in custody and be held without bond on five counts of murder as Ramos appeared via a video feed from a detention center. "And they got a newspaper out today", Buckley told Fox News.

Ronaldo out of World Cup after loss to Uruguay
For Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo it is heart-break, but ultimately they weren't good enough over the course of four games. Their style may not be pretty but it is most certainly effective. " Uruguay scored with their first shot on our goal".

Since no flag should fly higher than the US flag, all other flags, including state, municipal, corporate, or otherwise, should also be lowered during this same duration of time, Malloy said.

CBS reported authorities said it was a planned attack and Ramos used smoke grenades when he entered the building. The way Trump sees it if people are mad at the press they're less likely to believe he's as awful as everyone says he is.

'Obviously, I'm disappointed, you know? "It's just as important as any other tragedy".

President Donald Trump addressed the shooting Friday, calling it a "horrific, frightful thing" that "shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief".

The Maryland newspaper where five people were killed by a gunman last week said it received death threats and emails celebrating the shooting following the attack. "To not lower the flag unfortunately says a lot about the president's view of the members of the media". Buckley said. "This was an attack on the press".

"I was seriously concerned he would threaten us with physical violence", Marquardt said, according to the Daily Mail. He said the day after the shooting journalists shouldn't fear being violently attacked while doing their job.
