Trump: Flag-Burners Should Be Jailed

TrumpFlag-Burners Should Be JailedDuring an early Tuesday morning tweetstorm, the president-elect picked apart CNN, congratulated himself for winning the state of Michigan, and threatened flag-burners. Donald Trump announced that he was awake at 6:15 a.m. with a tweet about his victory in the Rust Belt state. He added, โ€œI thought that @CNN would get better after they failed so badly in their support of Hillary Clinton however, since election, they are worse!โ€ The Donald had also attacked the cable news channel Monday evening, claiming that CNN was โ€œembarrassedโ€ of its coverage of his Democratic rival. And seemingly unrelatedly, Trump used the social-media platform to say he believes โ€œnobodyโ€ should be โ€œallowed to burn the American flag.โ€ He added that โ€œthere must be consequencesโ€”perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!” Trump has yet to provide evidence of millions of people voting illegally, as claimed in his most recent tweetstorm. The president-elect has previously threatened to curb the First Amendment rights of the press, declaring during the campaign that heโ€™d like to โ€œopen up the libel lawsโ€ to make it easier for him to sue outlets that give him unfavorable coverage.
