Dems POW/MIA flags to replace with transgender-pride-flag-protest Trump military ban

A transgender pride flag, will appear in front of the Democratic Republic of the Kim Schrier office.

Several democratic lawmakers this week replaced the POW/MIA flags that show outside of their Capitol Hill offices with a Transgender equality flag to commemorate “Trans visibility week” photos.

“As a proud member of the @LGBTEqCaucus,” Schrier tweeted late Wednesday morning, “I will do everything I can to ensure that transgender people #WontBeErased by violence, fear or prejudice. I am committed to safety and equality for all. #TRANS visibility week”

A report by the Washington Free Beacon a photo-shot outside Schrier office is shown included in the January with the POW/MIA flag. Your office, allegedly, of the Free Beacon informs that the switch is only temporary.

Some Democrats, such as Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., be displayed the transgender pride flag next to the POW/MIA flag.
