Biden criticized the Pentagon's ban on the LGBT flag

The candidate in US presidents from Democratic party Joe Biden supported the ban of the Pentagon on the display of the Confederate flag, but criticized the ban on the LGBT flag, promising to return it right.

"The ban of the Confederate flag at military facilities is long overdue. The ban of the LGBT flag is a real symbol of diversity and inclusiveness is undoubtedly wrong. The Pentagon should ensure that will solve it, or I'll do it as President," he wrote Sunday on his Twitter.

Earlier, the Minister of defense mark Esper has signed a decree which contained a list of permitted demonstrations at military facilities flags. The Confederate flag and the flag of the LGBT were not included.

The list of allowed to posting on military facilities or territories of flags consists of nine items, in which there is no mention of the Confederate flag. An exception is made for museums, tombs, monuments and a number of other situations in which it "cannot be considered as the flag support from the Ministry of defense."

Earlier banning of the flag of the slaveholding South in the era of the Civil war, said Navy and U.S. marine corps.

On the backdrop of the death of an African-American George Floyd with the arrest by the police in the US has once again intensified the debate about racial discrimination, monuments and other symbols of the slave South.
