“Flags at the White House returned to full staff on Monday after they were lowered following the death of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) late Saturday.
Several reporters arriving at the White House early Monday noted that the flags were at half staff for less than 48 hours following the Senate giant’s death. President Trump ordered the flags lowered on Saturday evening.
A number of reporters and commentators noted that in the past flags remained lowered to honor lawmakers and major public figures until their funerals.”
