Flags at the Washington Monument and the Supreme Court were also at half-staff.

Trump also made the order for all military posts and naval stations to do the same.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday sent a letter to Trump requesting that the flags fly at half staff on all public buildings in the country when the COVID-19 death toll reaches 100,000.
