Trump critical of court ruling on flag burning

NY Times:

Trump’s Call to Revoke Rights of Flag Burners Defies Rulings

  • President-elect Donald J. Trump proposed that Americans who protest government policies by burning the flag could lose their citizenship.
  • The proposal conflicts with an array of Supreme Court precedents.
I suspect he knows about the court rulings and also knows they are deeply unpopular with many of the people who voted for him.

Trump does have a knack for trolling the left and it would not surprise me if that was his intention with this message.  When you get the leading liberal paper in the country to put his remarks as their lead story, he probably looks at the reaction as a success.
