President Trump: Thugs Who Burn USA Flag Should Go to Jail for a Year

Fact checked
President Trump declares that anyone who burns the U.S. flag should be sent to jail for one year

President Trump has called for thugs who burn American flags to be imprisoned for a year.

During his rally in Oklahoma on Saturday, POTUS suggested Congress pass legislation to make the burning of the American flag a criminal act, punishable by a one year prison sentence.

“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,” Trump began.

“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,” Trump continued.

Breitbart.com reports: “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,” he continued.

Last year, Trump supported legislation by Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) that would prohibit flag burning by passing a constitutional amendment. The legislation has stalled in Congress.

  1. While I am no fan of any politician and I don’t condone nor condemn the burning of the flag, it does fall under the first amendment of freedom of expression and speech so jailing them is not an option.

  2. Seriously America needs to reorganise its education departments drastically because its producing dumb arsed deadbeats without the least clue about the reality of the world. In fact the western world in total is churning put the same mind controlled robots and tertiary ” education” is fine tuning their ignorance and idioc .
