"Obviously, I'm disappointed", Mr Buckley, who moved to the U.S. in 1992, told the Baltimore Sun.

The American flag is lowered to half-staff at the White House in Washington, May 18, 2018.

Buckley said he was "disappointed" in the president's decision and said the attack on the newspaper was "just as important as any other tragedy".

He says he has been considering lowering the flags himself, but the Democratic congressman and his wife talked him out of it, saying protocol should be followed.

Five employees of the newspaper were killed Thursday when a gunman with a grudge against the newspaper shot them in the newsroom.

"To not lower the flag unfortunately says a lot about the president's view of the members of the media".

"I want to just remember what a wonderful person Rob was and what a great, wonderful, selfless life he led", said Cowherd, one of several speakers who addressed the crowd assembled beneath a large white tent.

President Donald Trump embraces the American flag.

Police identified the dead as John McNamara, 56; Robert Hiaasen, 59; Wendi Winters, 65; Rebecca Smith, 34; and Gerald Fischman, 61.

Mexico's World Cup ends with loss to Brazil
Neymar was the architect, crossing for Firmino, who is becoming something of a "supersub" for Brazil , to tap the ball home. Until that moment, it had looked like his would be a story of good Neymar-of what he brings to the game that is positive.


Though Trump publicly called the Capital Gazette shooting a "horrible, frightful event" and expressed support for the victims, in private he has told associates that he believes that what he called "the fake news" would blame him and his fiercely anti-press rhetoric for sparking the shooting, according to a report by The Daily Beast.

Trump has ordered American flags be lowered to half-staff for almost every fatal mass shooting that's received national attention since coming into office, including the attacks at US schools in recent months.

He is accused of entering the Capital Gazette office, firing through a glass door with a 12-gauge shotgun, hunting for victims and spraying the newsroom with gunfire as reporters hid under desks and begged for help on social media.

Hiaasen said her husband's care for people and his character was reflected in the stories he wrote.

The Sun said the letters were dated June 28, the day of the shootings.

In an interview earlier Monday with the Capital newspaper, Buckley said he was disappointed to hear that his request would not be honored.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for the man charged with killing five employees at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis.

"One thing that I do feel now is that he can no longer silence me".

Some have also pointed out that President Obama also faced criticism in 2015 for failing to quickly issue a proclamation that the flag be flown at half-staff for five US service members who were killed by a gunman at a naval reserve center in Chattanooga, Tenn.
