President Joe Biden reversed his Peace Officers Memorial Day Proclamation of flying flags half-staff, and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu called the President’s actions “outrageous.”
“Late [Friday night] 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,” Sununu tweeted. “This is outrageous and precedent breaking.”
“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,” he said. “[On Friday night], in the eleventh hour, the Biden Administration is now no longer calling for flags to fly at Half Staff.”
Sununu said his state 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 they have always.
“New Hampshire’s law enforcement are the best in the country, and they are owed an explanation for this sudden reversal,” he said. “I call on New Hampshire’s congressional delegation to join with me in rejecting this disrespectful decision.”
