Trump orders flags to fly at half-staff after Lewis’ death

President Trump ordered flags to fly at half-staff following the death of civil rights icon and congressman Rep. John Lewis. Trump issued a proclamation stating the act was ’a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding public service’ of Lewis. Lewis, 80, announced in Dec. 2019 that he had been diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer. He continued his work in Congress despite his illness.
