President Joe Biden reversed his previous order to fly flags at half-staff in honor of fallen police officers—bowing once again to the demands of the radical leftists.
Biden previously released a statement that flags would be flown at half-staff as part of Police Week from May 9-15. After pressure from constituents, he released a second statement that read:
“Please find attached an updated Presidential Proclamation honoring the Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week 2021. The flags will remain full-staff on May 15,2021.”
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu tweeted in response, “This is outrageous and precedent breaking.”
THREAD: Late tonight Joe Biden quietly tried to reverse his Peace Officers Memorial Day Proclamation, hoping no one would notice they are no longer calling for flags to fly at Half Staff across the USA honoring our men women in blue. This is outrageous and precedent breaking. 1/ pic.twitter.com/05RLqcs5ng

He added, “On May 10th, the Biden Administration announced in a release flags would be flying at Half Staff across the country to honor our heroes on the front line. Tonight, in the eleventh hour, the Biden Administration is now no longer calling for flags to fly at Half Staff.
“New Hampshire will continue to honor the men and women who have died or been injured in the line of duty by flying flags at Half Staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day as we have always done, and as is right.
“New Hampshire’s law enforcement are the best in the country, and they are owed an explanation for this sudden reversal. I call on New Hampshire’s congressional delegation to join with me in rejecting this disrespectful decision.”
Biden may bow to pressure from those who despise the police who protect our communities, but Sununu recognizes the truth. Without our police, we would be in a far worse situation as Americans.
Florida Rep. Brian Mast joined in response to Biden’s action. He tweeted:
Earlier this week Joe Biden announced that flags would be flown at Half Staff tomorrow to honor the men & women in blue who died in the line of duty. Today he “Friday news dumped” that he’d changed his mind: in his opinion, they aren’t worthy of lowering the flags. Unacceptable! pic.twitter.com/LJHPp4Wxa0

Biden may have hoped to honor law enforcement, but his appeasing actions have backfired. Americans want a president who fully supports law enforcement without backing down.
