President of the United States Donald trump urged to put in prison for a year for the burning of the American flag. He said on Saturday, June 20, at a rally in Tulsa (Oklahoma), reports TASS.

the American leader said that a few days ago the “left radicals” in Portland demolished the monument to the first President and one of the founders of the United States George Washington had him wrapped in an American flag and set on fire. “We should pass a law that if someone burns the American flag, he is sent to prison for one year”, — said the head of the White house under the cheers of supporters.
