President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that he would order US flags lowered to half-staff for 3 days in honor of Americans who’ve died from the novel coronavirus.
“I will be lowering the flags on all Federal Buildings and National Monuments to half-staff over the next three days in memory of the Americans we have lost to the CoronaVirus,” Trump stated.
“On Monday, the flags will be at half-staff in honor of the men and women in our Military who have made the Ultimate Sacrifice for our Nation,” he added.
Monday marks the US Memorial Day vacation, noticed in remembrance of those that have died in service.
