During a fiery rally, President Trump suggested American Flag burners be punished with a year of jail.
Two days ago, leftist radicals in Portland, Oregon, ripped down a statue of George Washington and wrapped it in an American flag and set the American flag on fire.
And you know, we ought to do something, Mr. Senators… we ought to come up with legislation that if you burn the American flag, you go to jail for one year.
We should have legislation that if somebody wants to burn the American flag and stomp on it, but just burn it, they go to jail for one year.
"We ought to come up with legislation that if you burn the American flag you go to jail for one year. One year…I'm a big believer in freedom of speech, but that's desecration." pic.twitter.com/CMJ0XmkO7z
