President Trump to Light White House Blue in Honor of Fallen Officers

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania will light the White House blue Monday in honor of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. 

"America stands strong with our brave men and women in blue," Trump said during a speech for Peace Officers Memorial Day Monday on Capitol Hill. "Every drop of blood spilled from our heroes in blue is a wound inflicted upon the whole country."

The President has requested governors around the country fly flags at half staff in memory of fallen officers.

President Obama was asked repeatedly to light the White House blue in honor of fallen officers. He refused.
