It would be nice if the incoming preznit knew something about the U.S. Constitution and our laws.
President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday proposed violating the U.S. Constitution and a landmark Supreme Court case when he said there should be “consequences” for people who burn the American flag.
Burning the flag is completely legal in the U.S. As the Supreme Court ruled in 1989’s Texas v. Johnson, it’s protected as free speech under the First Amendment.
The late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who Trump often praises, joined the majority opinion in that case.
This is the talk of a dangerous dictator, not a U.S. president. All patriots must resist him.
