What a shame…
Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken has reversed a Trump policy that banned the Pride flag from flying on the same pole as the American flag at US embassies.
Under Blinken’s new policy Pride Flags can now be put up before May 17th and can stay up for the whole month of June because it’s Pride month.
Pompeo and Trump both agreed that no flag should fly with the American flag at any US embassy but of course, the Biden regime reverses everything in their attempt to destroy American values.
Pride flags can be raised on the same pole as the American flag at U.S. embassies and consulates, according to a State Department cable. The authorization reversed a Trump-era decision. https://t.co/fUUU1TsLhd

The Hill got some in-depth details, check out what they had to share:
U.S. embassies and consulates around the world are authorized to display pride flags, symbolic of the LGTB community, during Pride Month after officials announced a blanket authorization, confirmed Friday.
The decision from Secretary of State Antony Blinken allows the rainbow flag to hang on the same pole as the American flag during the month of June, according to The New York Times, citing a State Department cable.
The flags can be hung before May 17, International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and stay up through the end of Pride Month, the cable instructs.
“Secretary Blinken is committed to the rights and prosperity of our LGBTQ+ community, both our employees at State and all around the world,” said State Department principal deputy spokesperson Jalina Porter during a Friday press briefing.
Just because something is “authorized,” doesn’t make it right. These embassies & consulates represent the United States of America—only the US flag should be flown. Not the gay pride flag, the Christian flag, or any other. Pray for our nation & leaders. https://t.co/9iU65jysdU

Fox News contributed to the story too:
American embassies and consulates around the world are now authorized to fly the rainbow flag on the same pole as the U.S. flag, according to reports.
The action by Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken reserves a Trump administration move that rejected requests from embassies to display the pride flag in June, when Pride Month is celebrated, The New York Times reported, citing a cable and department official.
Under Blinken’s authorization, the flag can be displayed before May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, through the end of June.
In the cable, Bliken said diplomatic outposts are not required to fly the flag and that leaders have the ability to “determine that such a display is appropriate in light of local conditions.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blocked embassies from flying the rainbow flag on the same pole as the American flag. The Times reported some embassies displayed it in other ways.
The only flag that belongs to be flown at US embassies is the American flag.
Don’t you agree?
