Washington, D.C. flags at half-staff to remember COVID-19 victims

Flags were at half-staff on Friday at the White House, the Capitol and other federal buildings after President Donald Trump made the order to honor the victims of the coronavirus.

The flags will be at half-staff until sunset on Sunday May 24th.

Flags at the Washington Monument and the Supreme Court were also at half-staff.

Trump also made the order for all military posts and naval stations to do the same.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday sent a letter to Trump requesting that the flags fly at half staff on all public buildings in the country when the COVID-19 death toll reaches 100,000.
