A mall in Oregon has told the manager of a kiddie train ride to remove the 3x5 U.S. flags draped across his train because they're an "unapproved visual".

The manager of the train, US Veteran Thomas Phelps, says he isn't going to take the flags off. He says they'll just have to fire him. You go Mr Phelps!

Here's the full story from KATU in Portland.
