- A small group of activists on Tuesday for the Trump International Hotel in New York City burned the American flag. It was a protest in response to a tweet that the new president Donald Trump inzond the world.
The relevant tweet Trump suggested that people of the United States flag burn their citizenship should be revoked or a year to sit in prison. The message caused an uproar on social media.
The Supreme Court of the United States decided in 1989 that the burning of flags is not a crime but rather a kind of protest and therefore protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. The Board has also determined more than once that one's citizenship should not be taken in such a case.
