Congresswoman Ilhan Omar slammed the United States President Donald Trump for prohibiting the country’s embassies from flying the signature rainbow Pride flag to commemorate LGBTQ Pride Month during June.
June is recognized as Pride Month worldwide. The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia requested to fly the flag on their respective official embassy flagpoles. The State Department denied those requests.
“This is another blatant example of this administration’s bigotry and discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community,” Omar tweeted Monday in response.
