Donald Trump: If you burn the flag you should go to jail

President-elect Donald Trump believes burning the American flag should be a crime, a move that suggests he supports efforts to override a series of Supreme Court decisions with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In recent decades, USA lawmakers have attempted several times to prohibit the burning or desecration of the red, white and blue US flag with its 50 white stars symbolizing the country's 50 states.

President-elect Donald Trump went on the offensive against CNN early Tuesday, asserting that the cabler's coverage of his nascent administration has grown "worse" since the election. This was decided in the 1990 Supreme Court case, United States v. Eichman.

"I don't want to run in circles on you, but these things matter, Jason, they just do", Cuomo said.

But Trump's opposition to the protection of flag burning puts him at odds with conservative leaders like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, whom Trump has praised as a "brilliant Supreme Court Justice, one of the best of all time".

Burning the American flag was ruled to be protected speech under the First Amendment.

"I don't see why anybody would want to burn an American flag", he said.

"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 President-elect wrote on Twitter.

"Chris, flag burning is completely ridiculous, and I think you know that, and I think the vast majority of Americans would agree", he said before trying to steer the conversation to Trump's most recent administrative picks.

"No act of speech is so obnoxious that it merits tampering with our First Amendment". "But we have a First Amendment right".

"People like that pose little harm to our country". The court struck down the federal Flag Protection Act of 1989 a year later.

Mayors of 'sanctuary cities' say they'll fight Trump's plans
However, critics say the term is misleading because people can still be deported from these jurisdictions by federal authorities . It declared itself a sanctuary city in 1989, and strengthened their stance in 2003 with its "Due Process for All" ordinance.

"I think the court is probably right that we want to protect those people who want to protest and their right to actually demonstrate with disgracing our flag, even though so many of us love our country and love our flag object to it".
