Things symbol group's overall and probably does. But its main thing is sure who. -- -- -- -- Tune in foreign. I have I have their band since this story broke his IE we saw the newspaper I guess last Tuesday or Wednesday. My initial reaction was when he's gonna turn this down because I don't remember the city ever doing this for any other ethnic group before. This story broke has there been a great. Ground swell of support or is -- compares this group the only one who is asked for this. And earlier on anyone that I am expressed concern me. Well to have people I. I see -- I agree with me. That that's not the place where that is not believe the now -- nation and govern the long run CIA you know we have religious thought.

Where you're not governed by an 1895 law it doesn't give that symbolism. Of a foreign flag. Over the United States would you consider that. And so there are -- and he. She knows what any property.

I did that's that's rare job for politician do it -- made a mistake here it's. But you just get -- let let me ask you the obvious questions if this request had come from. The Knights of Columbus. Or summit would be answer have been any different. We had sort of -- this saying yes so we're and then involved. I would. Seen this situation. They want you are denied the Columbus. No they -- flag. That would be different but this is a national flag over one nation -- and that's what makes a big difference. -- and out on my own. Our property that's what I get out of it now.
