BREAKING: Trump Administration Reportedly Rejected Requests from Embassies to Fly Pride Flag

The Trump administration has reportedly been rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the Pride flag during LGBT Pride Month.

U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia were denied by the Trump State Department to fly the flag this month, according to NBC News, citing three American diplomats. The embassies have been allowed to display the flags in and around the area, however none have been approved to display the flag on flagpoles.

The policy is a reversal from the Obama administration, who gave blanket permission to any embassy wanting to fly the Pride flag. Last Friday marked the first time since Trump took office that he formally recognized Pride Month.
