As coronavirus deaths pass 100K Trump should lower flags, Pelosi, Schumer say

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer urged President Donald Trump to lower flags at all public buildings when the U.S. death toll from COVID-19 reaches 100,000.

The Democratic leaders made their request Thursday in a letter to the White House saying the move would be “a national expression of grief so needed by everyone in our country.” Over 93,000 people have died from the coronavirus in the U.S., and 1.5 million have been sickened, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Pelosi and Schumer noted in the letter that the country will observe Memorial Day on Monday
