On Monday night Vice President Mike Pence confirmed a previously reported State Department ban on US embassies flying the rainbow flag.

Some embassies asked to fly the rainbow flag to honor LGBTQ Pride Month.

Pence told NBC News on Monday night: "When it comes to the American flagpole ... having one American flag fly, I think is the right decision."

Pence is a conservative evangelical Christian.

Pence has a long history of undermining the LGBTQ community.
