It doesn't really surprise me considering he signed on to the ridiculous "can't hit shit with it"... bump stock ban.
Look, I don't like it but I don't like a LOT of things. Banning shit only makes everything worse. That's written ALL over US History.
I disagree with Trump on this. I agree with the sentiment of banning flag burning, I totally respect that feeling, but I also have to acknowledge that if I endorsed it, I'd be a grade A, USDA Prime hypocrite. So as much as we don't like people desecrating the flag, there's not one thing we can do about it.
That said, it's actually an opportunity in disguise.
I am actually thankful people can burn the flag. A simple act is surprisingly helpful. How? It shows the patriots who may be watching, who their enemies are.
Take note of everyone who desecrates the flag. Recognize your enemies and the enemies of America.
And while you're watching them desecrate the flag...don't feel guilty about hoping they get horribly burned in the process.
Oh God Emperor, this is how you lose your base.
Fight for the principles not the context. Don't give us red herrings. Focus on the threats to America's fundamental underpinnings, the Constitution.

Uh no, that's free speech. WTF is wrong with everybody. Jesus fucking Christ.
STOP TELLING ME WHAT TO FUCKING DO YOU COCKSUCKERS
Trump's sentiment is good, but making a law to ban a form of expression (even if that expression is shit) is not. Better that it doesn't pass.
So its perfectly fine to burn Rainbow Pride and Antifa Flags?
So its perfectly fine to burn Rainbow Pride and Antifa Flags tho?
I hate the burning of the American flag but I support the free speech argument of those who wish to do it.
Trump and Candace are wrong on this issue; they are becoming like the regressive left on the issue of censorship/banning things they don't like.
It'll become a worrisome trend if Trump continues down this path along with the ridiculous bump-stock ban that doesn't solve crime nor help the pro-gunners in any way but pander to those screaming the loudest.
Remember who are your supporters come 2020.
Trump probably did this to make the regressive left go on a flag burning spree, to further scare away the moderates.
He is just solidifying his second term as the last Republican president. Demographics.
Dude! We have a clear and present danger to this society with all of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon depersoning people who are one inch to the right of Evergreen, and you are talking about banning Flag Burning? Trump, get your fsking priorities straight! You're going to have a lot of people who would otherwise support you doing exactly that because they are not allowed to even have a bank account because of something their parents have done before they were born!
My free speech trumps your patriotism...
