It’s about time!
According to news reports, a constitutional amendment was introduced by Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana that would ban burning the American Flag.
Trump took to Twitter and said,
A no brainer!
All in for Senator Steve Daines as he proposes an Amendment for a strong BAN on burning our American Flag. A no brainer!

The article of the legislation is two lines long reading,
The Congress shall have power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States.
Sen. Daines said in a press release about the constitutional amendment proposal,
The American flag has been a symbol of hope and freedom for centuries and ought to be respected. Our nation’s flag must be set apart as a protected symbol worthy of honor.
Trump has always been a huge supporter of protecting the American Flag. Just after he was elected, he tweeted,
Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!

The reason libtards can get away with burning the American flag is because back in 1989, the Supreme court ruled that burning the American flag was protected by the First Amendment and was a form of free speech.
Well, it seems that’s all about to change.
Should people who burn the American flag be subject to fines and jail time for up to a year?
