WASHINGTON - A draft policy being circulated by Pentagon leaders would ban the display of the Confederate flag in Defense Department workplaces or public areas by service members and civilian personnel.

The policy has not yet been finalized or signed by Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

It comes as President Donald Trump earlier in the day criticized NASCAR’s decision to ban the flag at its races and venues.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the draft. If approved, the draft Pentagon policy would bring the other military services in line with the Marine Corps, which banned Confederate displays on its bases in early June.

We've been warming today under a sunny sky, and the heat will only get more intense going forward. Today we warmed back to seasonal averages, and it will get much hotter through the weekend and beyond.
