Earlier this week Sens. Steve Daines (R-MT) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) introduced a Constitutional amendment that would ban the desecration of the American flag.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say he supports the amendment because it's a "no brainer."

He had actually said something similar back in 2016:

The Constitutional amendment is highly unlikely to pass Congress. Two-thirds the House and another two-thirds of the Senate must vote to formally propose an amendment. Assuming that passes, three-fourths of all state legislatures must vote in favor of the amendment. If that passes then it's added to the Constitution.

Conservatives, however, debated the issue. Should this be a Constitutional amendment? 

Some were very supportive of the idea.

Others had concerns, specifically about the right to free speech. The Supreme Court previously ruled in Texas v. Johnson that burning the American flag is protected under the First Amendment.
