Rep. Ilhan Omar, D., Minn., has accused the Trump administration of being “bigoted” amid reports that U.S. embassies have had requests to fly the rainbow Pride flag denied.

June is Pride Month, promoting visibility for the LGBTQ community, and U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia made requests to the Trump administration to fly the flag on the official embassy flagpole in honor of Pride. According to NBC News, those requests were denied by the State Department.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is another blatant example of this administration’s bigotry and discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community,” Rep. Omar tweeted on Monday in response to the news.

Vice President Mike Pence defended the decision to keep the pride flag off the pole at US Embassies in an interview Monday.

“As the president said on the night we were elected, we’re proud to be able to serve every American,” Pence said. “We both feel that way very passionately, but when it comes to the American flagpole, and American embassies, and capitals around the world, having the one American flag fly I think is the right decision.”

Responses to Omar’s tweet tended to be in support of the Trump administration’s decision.

“Don’t you think LGBTQ are Americans?” asked @Twin66.

“Why should a sexual orientation flag be flown over an embassy?” @Sosus328 tweeted.

“The Flag of USA is the only that should fly as Representative of our Nation and Liberties of ALL,” @JoseOlmos answered.

More examples follow.

Show your support for President Trump!

    A refusal to fly the flag is not bigoted. Now what her and her ilk do to those people is A HELL of a lot worse. No one seems to be saying shit about that

    Do us all of us a favor. Keep your opinions to yourself. If you don’t like being here go home to Somalia.

    Omar, hater of the US, doesn’t present the facts correctly. The American flag represents our Country & can only be flown alone on the main pole. The LGBT flag can be displayed anywhere else at the Embassy. As usual only present partial facts trying to cause trouble

    Omar, it is an American embassy representing ALL Americans not a segment of the population.

    American flag flies alone on a pole! It is called protocol. THE American flag represents ALL citizens of the US. How can she be a member of Congress and not know this? Omar should quit stirring the pot and put a sock in her obnoxious mouth!!
