President Donald Trump has ordered US flags on federal property be flown at half-staff through sunset Tuesday to honor five people slain at a newspaper in Maryland's capital.

The Mayor of Annapolis Gavin Buckley had made the request over the weekend, but was surprised to find his personal appeal rejected come Monday.

On Monday, as reported by the Inquisitr, Buckley claimed that the White House at first denied his request to have flags lowered nationwide.

Our Nation shares the sorrow of those affected by the shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. "I spoke with the mayor last night and again this morning to let him know the president's decision", she said. He said Monday: "This was an attack on the press".

President Trump has previously ordered flags to be flown at half-staff for other mass shootings, including the tragedies in Las Vegas; Santa Fe, Texas; and Parkland, Florida.

"It's a frightful situation, but I think it's the least respect we could give the journalists", Buckley said. "Is there a cutoff for tragedy?" he asked.

"It's not as noticeable when a state flag is down but you still have your main flags at full mast", Buckley told the Baltimore Sun after the making the request, adding he thought the tragedy merited national attention. It was an attack on freedom of speech. "But there's certain protocol that is followed".

Gov. John Kasich has ordered flags at public buildings and grounds in the state flown at half-staff in honor of five newspaper journalists slain in Maryland's capital.

When asked Tuesday morning if the president is committed to stop calling journalists the "enemy of the people", Sanders said that Mr. Trump has a "great deal of respect for the press", but also called on the media to be responsible with their reporting. Only the governor of a state or the president can order an American flag lowered to half-staff, per the USA flag code.
