Watch: Donald Trump Actually Admitted He Has No Idea What the 13 Stripes Represent

People rightfully dragged him for saying burning the flag should equal loss of citizenship.

Published November 29, 2016

  1. As the never-ending saga of 'Ridiculous Things Donald Trump Says' continues, we bring you this morning's tweet about the American flag
  2. Immediately, people could not believe his egregious punishment for people that burn the flag, an act protected by the first amendment
  3. Or how easy it is for him to threaten revoking someone's citizenship
  4. And many wonder how someone who has done far worse to harm Americans can make such an outrageous statement
  5. But most importantly, it's outrageous that he suggested such harsh punishment for disrespecting the flag when he admitted in the past to not fully understanding it
  6. In a segment for 'The Colbert Report' called 'Difference Makers,' Donald Trump admitted to not knowing what the 13 stripes represent

    The clip featured a 2007 report in which officials in West Palm Beach, Florida, voted to fine Trump $1,250 a day for flying a non-regulation size flag above his golf course without city zoning approval.


    Earlier this year, the Washington Post reported that Trump settled the case by making a $100,000 donation to charities. However, the money he used for that donation came from other donations to his own charity. 

    The Trump team has yet to comment as to whether or not the clip was taken out of context.
