On Saturday, President Trump created a new controversy when he tweeted that it was a “no brainer” to have an amendment that would ban the burning of the American flag.
All in for Senator Steve Daines as he proposes an Amendment for a strong BAN on burning our American Flag. A no brainer!

However, the situation got heated when conservative activist Candace Owens tweeted that she believed flag burning warrants a loss of citizenship.
If I were President, the punishment for burning the U.S flag would be the renunciation of citizenship.
No jail time, no fine— simply one year to liquidate your assets and get the hell out of our country.
In exchange, we’d extend citizenship to a hardworking LEGAL immigrant.
