How the Law Protects Flag Burning in the United States

How the Law Protects Flag Burning in the United StatesPresident-elect Donald Trump wrote on Tuesday that anyone caught burning the American flag should face consequences — including having their citizenship yanked or facing a year in jail, according to his tweet. The act is considered offensive by many, but flag burning is legal in the U.S. under Supreme Court rulings that it is constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment. It was not clear what sparked Trump’s tweet, but it comes after a college in Massachusetts took down an American flag on campus during protests of Trump’s victory after a previous flag burning incident.
