President-elect Donald Trump announced that people who burn the American flag need to be punished.
“Loss of citizenship” or one “year in jail”!
Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag — if they do, there must be consequences — perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!” Trump tweeted.
Just a reminder to liberals: Burning the American flag is a protected right under the First Amendment.
According to the Blaze:
This is not the first time Trump has advocated for clamping down on actions protected by the First Amendment. He has also discussed “opening up” the libel laws against the media, which would effectively restrict the free press over increased fear of frivolous lawsuits.
